Description of problem:
no eth0, eth1 or pci1#1, thus no networking
Two installs in three days on same system with same result.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start HTTP installation from Grub using initrd.img & vmlinuz from http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/15-Alpha.TC1/Fedora/i386/os/isolinux/
2.select and proceed with minimal installation type
3.boot newly installed system
yum can't install anything
ifconfig can find no network interfaces
lsmod shows as loaded required e100 module

lspci output and tail -n1000 /var/log/messages
I've since installed several more times, always with similar results - very long boot times, lots of trace messages, and anything network related failing. On the last attempt I eventually got to a login, logged in as root, and did 'ifconfig -a'. The result of that doesn't seem ever to have occurred. Something must be in an endless loop.

I'm not sure, why the reporter selected "ethtool" as component, because our
ethtool shouldn't be responsible for the described result. Reassigning to the
anaconda team, because I feel this is more anaconda than ethtool related...
biosdevname needs to be updated to not use # in the device name.
biosdevname-0.3.7-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
That URL is refusing me access.
this definitely looks like a +1 nth to me. If it affects enough people it's arguably a blocker, as it breaks "The installed system must be able to download and install updates with yum and PackageKit" - can't install updates with no networking.
biosdevname-0.3.7-1.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update biosdevname'. You can provide feedback for this update here: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/biosdevname-0.3.7-1.fc15
From the 2011-02-18 Alpha blocker review meeting
AGREED: 675048 - AcceptedNTH, updated koji build available
biosdevname-0.3.7-1.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
eth0 now found in 15alphaRC1, except it's been immemorably renamed to pci11p1 :-(

Yi yi yi yi yi yi yi, so complicated! So now one need find the back of the machine to see whether onboard or slot, and if slot guess which slot the NIC is in to predict what the name should be, and if onboard has more than one, guess which is/are which. :-( The new names should alias to legacy names.

See the link I previously noted for ways to get involved with the feature, and to voice concerns. This bug report isn't the proper place for feedback on the feature to be heard.

There is no such thing as a network "alias/symlink"!
