I want to have
radvd (the IPv6 router advertisement daemon) run on startup on Fedora 13. However, the network interface that it will use must be up, otherwise the daemon won't start.
If I run the daemon manually when the system is running everything works fine.
However, I can't figure out how to tell the Fedora 13 init system "run radvd on boot but only after wlan0 is up". wlan0 is managed by NetworkManager and it would be nice if I could keep it that way.
I tried enabling
radvd on boot using the GUI
system-config-services tool; then
radvd tries to start in the boot process (after NetworkManager) but fails because wlan0 does not exist. I also tried changing
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-wlan0 but that also didn't help (I don't understand exactly how the configuration in
/etc/sysconfig/networking/ interacts with NetworkManager).
It seems to me that this kind of thing should be straightforward with Upstart but I can't find an Upstart event that tells me "a network interface is up".
