           Summary: netconf should use ifplugd
           Product: Codex
           Version: test grimoire
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: net
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: juuso.alasuutari at tamperelainen.org


ifplugd is a nice little app. It runs a background daemon which can launch a 
command script, usually ifup/ifdown, whenever a network device is plugged or 
unplugged. netconf could well use this feature. 
 
There is one downside to ifplugd, though: it needs the driver to be present to 
observe network state changes. And as SMGL's ifdown unloads the driver module 
if one is used, ifplugd will not be able to bring the interface back up 
anymore when the cable is again plugged in. (If the module is then manually 
loaded, though, ifplugd will take immediate action.) 
 
Nevertheless I ask for integration of ifplugd into netconf. It could be an 
option that's only available for static configurations, and of course only if 
the spell itself is installed (would be unnecessary to include it as 
dependency).
