Package: laptop-net
Version: 2.15-1
Severity: normal

Well, this is a strange bug.....

Since a few days (how many? Don't know) laptop-net does not detect anything
when I unplug my network cable.

I basically have two possible network schemes (see schemes file below) and 3
profiles (home, offline and work....offline is the profile that was
previously automatically selected when I unplugged the network cable).

My network card is 3c59x (driver compiled into the kernel...which is either
2.4.20 or 2.4.21-pre4).

More stran,ge : if I unplug the network cable very soon after rebooting, I
get the correct behaviour : laptop-net detect the change or properly
switches to the "offline" profile.

But, after a while, this is not detected anymore.

I suspect a side-effect of something else, but what could cause this?

I run sid, updated nearly daily. I also run my own kernel, as previously

My schemes file :

case "${SCHEME}" in
    # Setting nothing means to leave the network interface disabled.
    # Set to "yes" to use DHCP

    # These bindings specify a static address and are ignored if DHCP is used:

    # IP address (required)
    # Netmask (required)
    # Broadcast address (optional)
    # Network address (optional)
    # Gateway address (optional)

    # These bindings are used both for DHCP and static addresses:

    # Local domain name (optional)
    # Search list for host lookup (optional)
    # Nameservers, separated by spaces (optional)

My /etc/laptop-net/profiles/home/patterns :


My /etc/laptop-net/profiles/offline/patterns :


I'll try to make further investigation, especially with information from the
log files.....
