Question [OpenSUSE] nfs _netdev in fstab


I searched the forum, found many similar threads but no solution.
I'd like to manage a nfs-mount via etc/fstab.
The simplest solution (or lets say, I forgot _netdev) went wrong - but in bash I could mount - showing the entry in the fstab is fine. (nfsvers=3, soft).
So I added _netdev. I expected from the system, that mount would be called twice in the init scripts:
The first without those _netdev (s) and after bringing up the network then mounting all _netdev (s).
But it seems, it is not working this way.
Is anyone here, who can explain the (may OpenSUSE special) behaviour?
I found in the information that _netdev is especially for nfs - so should work, shouldn't it?

uname -all
Linux ******* #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:45:30 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Thanks in advance

No helping hand here?

Here there,

so sad - no one replied...
Is noone here to help?
I found out some more details:
I try to establish the mount over a vlan - and the problem seems to come therefrom. Only whyle the first connect (ifconfig vlan## up) it tooks very long to setup it up - and an immediate mount after the command goes wrong...
Waiting many seconds and trying again works fine.
Any hints?

Greats and thanks



fstab, nfs, opensuse, opensuse112, vlan
