Description Jørgen Nørgaard 2004-03-08 08:39:29 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
I have been using kernels 2.6.1-1.65 to 2.6.3-1.118 and up2date'd to
2.6.3-2.1.242.

After that there is a failure during boot related to ethx.

There is one nic on the machine, yet it seems like 2.6.3-2.1.242 tries
to initialize two, eth0 and eth1. Network does not work afterwards.

NIC: 3com 3c905c-tx/tx-m

Relevant entries from boot.log:

Mar  8 13:52:45 fedora network: Setting network parameters:  succeeded
Mar  8 13:52:45 fedora network: Bringing up loopback interface:  succeeded
Mar  8 13:52:45 fedora ifup: cannot change name of eth1 to eth0: File

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-03-08 08:41:43 EST
you need newer modutils...
Comment 2 Jørgen Nørgaard 2004-03-08 10:17:29 EST
OK, new modutils did it.

Thanks.
