Occasionally, I come across a situation where the network device I am
using gets changed after a new kernel is installed eg from eth0 to eth2.
This is on a machine with 3 NICs.
I thought I found the right setting for /etc/network/interfaces using
"hwaddress ether XX:XX...", however, that doesn't seem to be working on
my Dapper machine.
Can anyone offer any advice on how to force which hardware is eth0?
I'm using Fedora, and I use the file /etc/modprobe.conf
to say, e.g.,
alias eth0 tulip
alias eth1 e100
alias eth2 3c59x
Hope this helps.
