Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188955
device for ipw2200 changes each boot
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:59:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The device created for ipw2200 wireless ethernet card changes each boot. It
apears to be intermitant, it will somethimes be created at /dev/eth1 (expected
behaviour) but also as /dev/dev4083 or simlare.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 084
This apears to occurs about 4 out of 5 times
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start laptop
2. Let NetworkManager bing up the interface
device created as /dev/dev#####
device created as /dev/eth1
Bill, is this a problem with the interface renaming?
I actually use a record in /etc/iftab that automatically renames my wireless
device to wlan0 since I don't like the idea of having eth* for wifi, but am
interested in this bug, too.
Please try the updates-testing initscripts.
Is this still happening?
Sorry I no longer have the t40p with this card in to test.
This should be fixed in either the FC5 updates or the FC6 devel tree. Please
reopen if it is not fixed.
