eth0 hotplug
« on: July 05, 2022, 12:54:03 AM »
I'm running piCore-13.0.1 on RPI B Plus Rev 1.2. I found that when internet cable plugged and then unplugged eth0 not going up automatically.
Is it possible to bring it up automatically once cable plugged?
p.s. eth0 getting address via dhcp

For me not. Probably it is device specific.
If RPI booted but no cable connected then after plug it in eth0 going up ok. But if booted with cable connected and then disconnected and reconnected not going up.

When you unplug the cable, there is nothing "Downing" the interface.  As there is not a network manager running.

What are you doing when unplugging?  Are you plugging back into the same network?

Sounds like you have a complicated solution running there.  You probably need to use a network manager, or script your own.

BTW checked another RPI 2 B box and same behavior.
Also i have tested raspbian buster image and such problem not exists. Means after lan cable plugged in again network also  brings up. Tested several time no issues.
I may use raspbian, but i don't like very long boot and shutdown time and overall slow work. TC performs much much faster.

RaspiOS runs a network manager.  And is a full OS

TinyCore/Picore is a toolkit,  Add what you need to make it work.   You could easily script your ethernet cable plug/unplug events manually.

Hi Demontager
I've put together a small script that monitors and prints out network cable status.
Status is determined as follows:
Quote
# The script monitors the file  /sys/class/net/NIC/carrier
# where  NIC  is your Network Interface Card,  eth0  for example.
# If the file contains 0, the cable is currently unplugged.
# If the file contains 1, the cable is currently plugged in.
# If the file does not exist, the NIC is down, possibly because:
#    1. The NIC was never brought up.
#    2. Someone ran the command  ifconfig NIC down
#    3. Some other reason.

The script prints out the current status when it first starts, after that, it will print out status any time it changes:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~/net$ ./CableSense.sh
Cable is plugged in.
Cable was unplugged.
Cable was plugged in.

You will need to decide what commands (if any) you want to run when the script starts and when there is a state change.
Look at the 2 sections that begin with  case $Cable in  and end in  esac.
Look at the  echo  commands to pick where you want to execute a command(s) and add it/them like this:
Code: [Select]
1)
echo. "Cable was plugged in." >>$LogFile
Add your commands here
and here
and so on
;;

If you want to stop messages from being echoed to the screen, find the section labeled  # Where to send messages to:
and  uncomment  the appropriate line.

The script is fairly well commented, but feel free to ask questions.

Hi Rich!
Thanks for your script and efforts to help. Sorry for late reply, just seen it. Your script is doing well, but unfortunately can't test it on hardware i had when posted this topic. I passed over two of these RPIs boxes to other people to have them VPN running. (We are on occupied territory by russian hordes and mostly all ukrainian internet resources are blocked). I only have RPI 3 Model B Plus Rev 1.3 right now and it has no issues with plugging in/out. Anyway i may say that problem was hardware specific and affect RPI B and 2 models.
