Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 98204
unnecessary alias in modules.conf
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem:
For some odd reason, after an install on an rx5670 with 17 network interfaces
(eth0-eth16), /etc/modules.conf contains this:
alias eth0 tg3
alias eth1 tg3
alias eth2 tg3
alias eth3 eepro100
alias eth4 eepro100
alias eth5 tulip
alias eth6 tulip
alias eth7 tulip
alias eth8 tulip
alias eth9 tulip
alias eth10 tulip
alias eth11 tulip
alias eth12 tulip
alias eth13 tulip
alias eth14 tulip
alias eth15 tulip
alias eth16 tulip
alias scsi_hostadapter sym53c8xx_2
alias eth17 e100
Note the 'eth17' at the end.
A) This interface does not exist. (most important)
B) it's using e100, which is odd, since the eepro100 driver loaded for eth3
and eth4 will claim any cards which would otherwise be configured for e100.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHAS2.1 Q2 errata on a system with 16 interfaces (I used 3x 4-port
tulip cards, 2xeepro100 cards, 2xGB Ethernet cards, and the core networking
2. look at /etc/modules.conf
eth17 has an alias in /etc/modules.conf
eth17 shouldn't be aliased anywhere, since it does not exist.
ISSUE TRACKER 26388 OPENED AS SEV 1.
Note that this is a sev 2 at most as reflected in the Bugzilla
What are the contents of /etc/sysconfig/hwconf immediately after the first reboot?
It looks like kudzu is picking up a phantom interface.
