Description Jeremy Katz 2003-08-03 21:33:20 EDT
If you have HWADDR= in ifcfg-eth[01] and the device for them being eth0 and eth1
respectively, things get confused (complaints about device already existing) if
the modules are loaded such that the device you want to be eth0 is currently
eth1 and vice versa.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-08-07 22:30:34 EDT
Fixed, will be in 7.29-1.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-21 16:05:09 EDT
Fix works for me.
