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

How reproducible:
This apears to occurs about 4 out of 5 times

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start laptop
2. Let NetworkManager bing up the interface
Actual results:
device created as /dev/dev#####

Expected results:
device created as /dev/eth1

Bill, is this a problem with the interface renaming?
Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2006-04-18 14:44:29 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2006-04-18 15:06:42 EDT
Please try the updates-testing initscripts.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-22 00:01:25 EDT
Is this still happening?
Comment 6 Benjamin Hardill 2006-09-22 03:14:45 EDT
Sorry I no longer have the t40p with this card in to test.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2006-09-22 11:18:16 EDT
This should be fixed in either the FC5 updates or the FC6 devel tree. Please
reopen if it is not fixed.
