Description of problem:
I have 2 network cards in my computer, which are correctly displayed in the
Hardware Browser as follow:
In the Network Configuration Program, under the Hardware tab, I see
Description Type Device Status
VT6105 (Rhine-III) Ethernet eth0 ok
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ Ethernet eth0 ok
VIA VT86c100A Rhine-II PCI Ethernet eth1 configured
When I delete the VIA VT86 line and I change the VT6105 from eth0 to eth1, I
save, I reboot the computer.
The configuration is back to the one hereabove. None of my changes has beens saved!
Devices working with eth0 do not work.
Assigning different IRQ to the VT6105 and to the RTL doesn't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the 2 network cards above
2. Start redhat 9, start Network Configuration
3. Look in Hardware tab
Actual Results: 2 cards are assigned eth0
Expected Results: The second card should have eth1 instead of eth0
please attach /etc/modules.conf
alias eth0 8139too
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
alias char-major-195 nvidia
alias eth1 via-rhine
strange... did you bind the devices to the ethernet address (MAC)??
please attach the output of:
Sorry I have sold the second card back. I cannot give you any more
