Description Randall Wood 2009-03-27 08:48:06 EDT
Description of problem:

Upgraded NetworkManager in a "yum update" command and when I restarted my laptop the next morning, device eth0 was listed as "not physically present" with a new MAC address, a new device eth1 with the same MAC address as eth0 had originally had was created, and NetworkManager dies at start (although the init script reports success). I have had to manually start the network service to bring the system online.

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


How reproducible:

Am not attempting to reproduce without further guidance.

Restarting the system after manually changing udev and networking to rename the new eth1 to eth0 and removing the new eth0 have returned the eth* ports to their original state, but NetworkManager still dies. 

Steps to Reproduce:
