    replaced eth0 nic, new nic comes up as eth1


    slackware 12.0 kernel 2.6.27

    i have some flakey network issues and want to try another network card

    i switched the cards and as the system is booting up i can see the new card
    identified as eth0 but ifconfig says eth0 is not there, mii-tool says it eth1

    rc.inet1.conf is setup to use eth0, all other eth are blank, this is the
    only network card

    i have no modprobe, just whatever the system finds as it comes, the module
    for the network card is in lsmod but not used by anything

    lspci shows the correct network card


    thanks

    try "mii-tool -r" and have it renegotiate the interfaces.
    Does it have a problem connecting or is the issue just the eth0-eth1 confusion in mii-tools?

    If your using fedora take a look at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules don't know about other distros, but probably in the same place.
    In a world without walls and fences, who needs Windows and Gates?

    hi blinky, that was what i needed, thanks for pointing me in the right direction

    /etc/udev/rules.d/75-network-devices.rules was it, it had 4 nics eth0-3, thank you

    # If you delete this file, /lib/udev/nethelper.sh will try to
    # generate it again the next time udev is started.
