Normally I use my laptop as a workstation, with wired Internet and a 1 T
extra disk in the cd-tray.
Today I tried to boot it in a cafe, off-line and without the extra disk.
It was not possible. Systemd would just wait indefinitely for some
start-up jobs (it was waiting for the missing disk to come on-line among
some other things). Fortunately, I had the extra disk with me, so I
attached it and tried again. Still for no use. Systemd now waited for
the network interfaces. So I had to actually connect an ethernet cable
to a router just to get the crap to boot, and then unplug it and walk
back to my table.
How did this happen? How come Debian is now /more/ useless than
Windows? It can't even boot if the hardware configuration is not exactly
the way it assumes. WTF!
Maybe a solution for the network part.
remove or command out eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces and use the
network-manager-applet to set the interface.
a firewall is started at boot time and will wait for the interface.
