Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84406
Problems with suspend/resume and network
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:34:27 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a laptop with an e100 card as eth0 and a orinoco based wlan card as eth1.
I've set them up through redhat-config-network and on boot they work just fine.
However, after suspend resume the pcmcia based WLAN adapter is started as eth0
and the system is confused since it now has the wrong MAC. This leads to modules
not wanting to be unloaded etc and I have to reboot the system to get network up
and running again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is all the latest stuff from rawhide today.
Steps to Reproduce:
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 83996 ***
you don't have to reboot the system, just do the following:
ifdown eth0; ifdown eth1
rmmod <module list>
where module list is probably "e100 orinoco_pci orinoco hermes" or something
Then, if you want to use wireless:
modprobe eth0; ifup eth1
otherwise, if you want to use landline:
ifup eth0; modprobe eth1
otherwise, if you don't want to use either right now:
modprobe eth0; modprobe eth1
This should allow you to avoid the reboot, but it does need to be fixed ;)
