Description Steven Shiau 2006-11-02 03:23:17 EST
Description of problem:
If I replace a network card, the kudzu will re-generate the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, like:
# Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+
My original config file is:
How can I disable that, i.e., I do not want to let kudzu automatically
generate the ifcfg-eth0 for me,  while still let kudzu to detect all the
hardware ?
Is that possible to do that by some options passed to kudzu ?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Replace a different NIC card
2. Boot the machine
3. /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is re-generated, with DHCP and
Actual results:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is re-generated, with DHCP and onboot=yes.

Expected results:
Keep the original ifcfg-eth0 by some options passed to kudzu

Not really, no.
Comment 2 Steven Shiau 2006-11-02 20:27:11 EST
Could that be a possibility in the futuer kudzu ? Since sometimes it's not
necessary to have a ifcfg-ethx with dhcp and onboot=yes.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-11-02 23:42:48 EST
Well, you can turn off kudzu if you don't want it touching network files -  the
only things it changes these days are network configurations and X configurations.
Comment 4 Steven Shiau 2006-11-03 00:33:07 EST
Sure. However, if possible, please consider to add an option that won't let
kudzu to re-generate network configurations and X configurations. This is very
usefull when an existing config file is already customized.
Comment 5 Carl Roth 2006-11-21 12:57:39 EST
This kudzu behavior is actually quite annoying with wireless devices.  Kudzu
will overwrite the interface configuration, deleting any hand-entered encryption
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2006-11-21 13:00:12 EST
Try the updates-testing kudzu - it should be fixed to not randomly misfire and
reconfigure things.
