network initscript is not able to create bridge
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:12:05 EDT
Description of problem:
I've got one network card and I have setup network bridge there. With latest
initscripts I'm not able to start it. Messages like "peth0 device doesn't
exists" will be seen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See attached configuration
downgrade to initscripts-8.60-1 fixes problem for me
Created attachment 292345 [details]
ifcfg-eth0 configuration file
Created attachment 292346 [details]
Interesting. There's nothing obvious in the changelog that would affect that.
There's changes between 8.60 and 8.61 in both ifup-eth and ifdown-eth ; does
reverting either (or both) of these solve it?
This is pretty interesting problem. I've installed 8.61 and rebooted. Message
"Device peth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization." was printed
and network wasn't started. When I use ifup-eth from 8.60 (all other was from
8.61) network is started as expected. But when I downgraded to 8.60 and update
to 8.61 problem is not reproducable!. All steps written above was done without
reboot. When you reboot now you will see problem again. I'm not sure what's going on
Is known any workaround with initscripts >= 8.61-1? What is correct way to setup
bridge with newest initscripts?
Hm, a test bridge worked for me fine. Is the ethernet device actually named

Device was named eth0 so this was main problem. I'm not sure why such broken
configuration worked long time ago and now it causes problems. I fixed my
configuration and now it works as expected. Thanks for your hint, closing
