How to ensure that PCI card is assigned desired eth number
I am going to give a try migrating from Cisco to Linux routing.
The first question is wether there exists a way to ensure that a PCI card is assigned the desired device number? Is that possible always to reference an embedded ethernet card as eth0, ethernet card in the first slot as eth1 and so on?
In other words: I would like to find out how a chain
segment -- card in a slot -- logical device -- ip
is guaranteed in the Linux world?
