Question Where is the network device?


Hello

I've recently figured out a problem when upgrading from 2.4 kernel to 2.6. It was because the 2.4 kernel detected my (in use) network adapter as eth0 while the 2.6 kernel detected the unused network adapter as eth0 instead.

1. Was it detected differently because of udev?
2. Can I force a network adapter to always be eth0?

Many thanks,
Steve

1. no, I think udev is nothing to do with network devices
2. sure you can. It is done by passing an "eth0=..." parameter to your kernel at bootime. Refer to your kernel-networking documentation in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking and insert the approciate one in your bootloader config
