Mac addresses of network interface assignments swap between Fedora 10 and Fedora 11.
network adaptor card eth0 in Fedora 10, becomes eth1 in fedora 11. However if network manager controlled the interfaces networking then works.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install fresh Fedora 11 dual boot with fedora 10.
2.uncheck controlled by network manager in the network configuration tool.
3.disable network manager.
Network does not connected as Mac address assignments are incorrect. i.e. eth0 is Mac address of eth1. No network connectivity between Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 (Dual Boot machine).
Networking should be seamless between Fedora 10 and Fedora 11.
Clicking probe in the hardware tab of the network config app does not save the mac address. in-addition swapping the eth0 and eth1 in the hardware tab does not save.
