Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:57:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Intel IPW2200 mini-PCI wireless network card configured as dev19623 instead of
eth1 (HP TC1100 Tablet PC)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kudzu from FC5t2: 1.2-18-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5t2
2. Start system-config-network to configure wireless network
3. Wireless network card detected as dev19623 (hardware tab)
Wireless network card detected as dev19623 (hardware tab)
Wireless network card detected as eth1 (eth0 is onboard ethernet)
References to dev19623 can manually be removed by editing scripts in
/etc/sysconfig/networking and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
That this is probably a kudzu problem was suggested by Peter Jones.
What do your modprobe.conf and ifcfg-XXX files look like,and what does 'ifconfig
-a' show when you start s-c-network?
