Description Ken Dreyer 2011-08-24 15:52:38 UTC
Description of problem:
nethogs defaults to using "eth0". It should default to something else, maybe "em1"?

See:
http://domsch.com/blog/?p=455
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ConsistentNetworkDeviceNaming


Version-Release number of selected component:
nethogs-0.7.0-9.fc15.i686


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "nethogs" with no arguments
2. "ioctl failed while establishing local IP for selected device eth0. You may specify the device on the command line."
3. Re-run with "nethogs em1"
4. nethogs works

This is an upstream problem. I am only the package maintainer for the distribution.

You could create a alias for your system:

alias nethogs="nethogs em1"

and place it on your bashrc

AS
