Description Mustafa Mahudhawala 2004-11-11 02:38:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
disklessrc fails to setup multiple ethernet cards on the diskless
client, if they are of different type i.e. require different modules.
In this case it just initialises the first card (eth0)

The problem seems to be in the implementation of findhardware() function.

Due to this, the ETHERNET= option which allows selecting the interface
to use for networking, is crippled as other interfaces (eth1 and
above) are no longer avaliable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
evident from the program logic.

Actual Results:  Loads the module corresponding to the first ethernet
card only.

Expected Results:  Should load all the required modules depending on
the installed/available ethernet cards.
