Package: mediatomb
Version: 0.12.0~svn2018-3ubuntu2
Severity: important


I've installed mediatomb on my PC but it doesn't launch at boot because
the interface I've specified in the config file with <interface> doesn't
exist at the point when the program is ran. The following is present in
the log file:

2009-06-24 09:18:51   ERROR: Could not determine interface address:
Cannot assign requested address
2009-06-24 09:18:51   ERROR: Could not find interface: eth3

It works if I restart via the init script after the machine is booted.

I tried moving the script later in the sequence by increasing the place
in the init ordering but this had no effect.
