Two network interfaces on Slackware


Hi,

I've got a frustrating network problem since I upgraded my desktop computer. I now have an Asus M2A-MX motherboard with an integrated network controller, but I also have a PCI network card. I've used two network cards on Slackware for a time without problem, they have appeared as eth0 and eth1, respectively, but after the upgrade I now have eth1 and eth0_rename, the integrated one as eth1.

Any idea about the eth0_rename interface? Why does it not appear as eth0?

That is pretty odd. Is the second Ethernet interface configured in rc.inet1.conf? Was this a clean install of Slackware 12.1 or an upgrade?

Odd, yes indeed. They are both configured in rc.inet1.conf but that doesn't have any effect on the names of the interfaces. I've used Slackware since 11.0 and always upgraded, maybe I should try a clean install?

Perhaps. You are sure there aren't any *.new files laying around under /etc, right?

I tried to change the network PCI-card to another, and that actually solved the problem. However, thank you for your answers!
