I have 2 networking interfaces
eth0 (wired) and
wlan0 (wireless). Every time the computer boots it tries to bring up both. Most often when there is a LAN cable I don't need
wlan0, and vice versa, so this looks like a waste. I want to stop the interfaces from being brought up automatically so that I can bring up the one that I need, if at all.
According to the Gentoo Handbook I need to run
# rc-update add net.eth0 default
eth0 up every time the system boots and I assume the same thing goes for
wlan0. However the result of
# rc-update show
does not contain either
So the question is, who is bringing up the 2 interfaces? How can I stop that?
