When using a wifi connection, the boot process is slowed down by the ethernet interface. On my Pi2 B it can take more than a minute to reach the timeout and to continue the boot sequence.
It is because the eth0 interface is declared as “auto eth0” in the /etc/network/interfaces file. It waits for a cable to be connected and the timeout is quite big.
Changing the line to “allow-hotplug eth0” will abort the configuration of the ethernet interface when no cable is plugged.
I did this and now booting is really fast.
Changes where made also in the /var/www directory on files command/player_wrk.php, net-config2.php and net-config.php in order to write a corrected file when choosing the network connectivity.
Can this be changed in a future release?
