I have three possible internet connections on my pi:
eth0 (unused) wlan0 - a cheapo dongle usb0 - my Android phone.
When I switch on my Pi, it searches for an ethernet connection for a long time, which, seeing as it's disconnected, never happens.
It repeatedly spits out the result...
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval...
...over and over again for about 1-2 minutes, before booting normally. Whilst this isn't a problem per se, it is annoying and simply slows me down. Seeing as I'm trying to use the Pi in a very portable configuration, this is a bit of a nark.
Does anybody know how to stop this happening?
P.S. I'm on Raspbian Wheezy
