systemd completely breaks on an upgrade to Fedora 18 machines with multiple network interfaces
Last modified: 2013-01-28 07:52:05 EST
Description of problem:
After an upgrade to Fedora 18 of a working machine with two network interfaces one is greeted with a missing network connection. It turns out they names of network interfaces are swapped at random from boot to boot with no way to predict an outcome. That despite of a pre-existing file
which specifies names tied to MACs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
A control over how network devices are named (or at least a consistency
If devices happen to have different drivers, which are also modules, then an old hack of forcing in a modproble configuration a load order ('softdep' directive can be used for that) seems to work around. It seemed to me that years ago it was possible to forget about such bogosity.
Do not try to tell me that NM facing DHCP server can handle this breakage. This is true but so what?
