Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184117
network settings are broken
Last modified: 2008-03-10 21:05:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time I reboot some network settings are different then previously. First
eth1 (wireless) and eth0 (wired) were switched. Now eth0, the wireless card,
is shown as ethernet and the wired card as wireless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not a clue
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot and see what changed this time
no changes in configuration
Relevant lspci output:
06:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI
Adapter (rev 05)
06:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit
Ethernet (rev 10)
I use the drivers that came with fc5t3 and the 2.4 firmware for wlan card.
Found out today that these 2 lines in /etc/modprobe.conf were causing the
alias eth0 r8169
alias eth1 r8169
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested,
please feel free to reopen the bug report.
Thank you in advance.
