    problems activating wlan0 on boot

    Is there a simple way of automatic activating wlan on boot with dhcp,
    when on board eth0 card (not wireless) is also present?
    I'm using Suse and yast2 takes 'eth1' as new card but doesn't allow to enter 'wlan0'.
    When booting, dhcp tries to run on eth0 (disconnected) and on eth1 (fails),
    then I have to log in as root and execute 'dhcpcd wlan0' manually, then everything works.
    The question is if I can bypass the last step.

    Thanks,
    Dmitri.

    why not edit your startup scripts and add

    "dhcpcd wlan0" ??

    there should be a rc.local file you can add that into or a rc.S

    Indeed, why not
    The only question is where to add it.
    I couldn't find any file called rc.local.
    Any other file I can write it in?

    Thanks, Dmitri.

    Obviously they did (what for making things simple?)
    There is /etc/rc.d and /etc/init.d in which
    there is a big script 'rc' and directories rc0.d - rc6.d and rcS.d
    but there is no file called 'rc.local'.
    Maybe there is another way of adding this command?

    Thanks,
    Dmitri.
