Hello! I use Devuan and sysVinit. I often use different networks and sometime switch to smartphone's hotspot. This is how I typed my extra simple config, cat /etc/network/interfaces

#wifi with wlan0 to Xiaomi Redmi
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
	wpa-ssid Redmi
	wpa-proto WPA2
	wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
	wpa-psk mykeyheremykeyhere

This connects me to my smartphones network. But if I reboot and switch off my smartphone's hotspot (for example next day, when I just came to work), my Devuan stops booting because of DHCPDISCOVER that waiting network with continuing delays. This is awful, I wish first start X-server and Slim for type my username and pass and only after that start networking and DHCP. Could you advise something? How to move start of networking after start of Slim?
