I’m currently using Volumio 2.031 on a Rpi2 with a RT5370 wireless dongle. It always took very long to boot an I tried to figure out why.
Looking at the console log, I noticed that the boot process always stalls at:
A start job is running for LSB: Raise network interfaces
After googling a bit, I found the reason. Configuring network via WebUI produces the following /etc/network/interfaces:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet manual[/code]
After commenting out the ‘auto wlan0’ and ‘auto eth0’ lines, bootup works fast and without errors.
So all in all I think the network configuration should remove the ‘auto *’ (except for ‘lo’) and only set ‘allow-hotplug’.
On a side note: wlan0 is set to manual, although I use dhcp, but I didn’t change that line since the interface seems to come up fine…
