Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 682381
Last modified: 2014-11-09 17:34:13 EST
Description of problem:
Network devices can have arbitrary names, and due to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ConsistentNetworkDeviceNaming, will have
different names in Fedora 15. Also, it's possible due to hardware changes, etc. that a box only has eth1, eth2, etc.
if(ioctl(skfd, SIOCGIFHWADDR, &ifr) < 0)
warn("could not obtain hardware address for eth0");
Now, given that it does have fallback code for both of these functions if it fails, I'm not sure it drastically affects functionality at runtime. Filing for completeness.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
