No Eth0 under raid 5 setup on new server.


So, just built a new server and set it up as raid5 for / /boot and swap.
During the setup (which was an adventure in itself due to the Slackware documentation having errors) I noticed that I had both eth0 and eth1 available. However, when complete, upon booting the new server, using an initrd, I only get Eth1. Eth0 is now showing as 'rename2' when probing using ifconfig. 'rename2' is unable to be setup.

Also, even though I have set up Eth1 for a static ip, it fails to connect to the network with an error of 'network unreachable' I got round it by first doing a dhcpcd on it, then downing it and bringing it back up with the static ip I need in rc.local. But that is a bit of a cludge really.

So, all in all, a successful server build, but just a couple of small issues to address.

FYI, lspci is thus:

I would delete the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules restart and see what you have then ..

Could be that udev did some thing funky with the naming of the Ethernet

Care to elaborate on those errors?

Yeah, sorry, should have been more succinct.

Followed the rather excellent Slackware guide for setting up a raid array, but ended up with a kernel panic as it turns out that booting from a raid array doesn't allow udev to create the device nodes until it has mounted the raid array which it can't do until udev has created the device nodes which it........ Well you get the picture.

Any way, turned out to be an error in the guide which fails to mention that you need to create an /etc/mkinitrd.conf file which contains the line "UDEV"="1" as per this guide https://sites.google.com/site/pincza...at-4kb-sectors. (based off of the Slackware one)
The other error was to do with sfdisk, which doesn't seem able to copy a partition table from one drive to another if the recipient drive has no existing part table, so really just lacking info on that score.

Anyhow sorted all that and up and running, but now still stuck with the weird network interfaces issue.

Tried deleting the persistent net rules. On reboot just the same.

Anyone got any ideas?

More info,

Doing a
Code:
dmesg | grep eth
gives this response

[ 51.802367] r8169 0000:05:00.0 eth1: link up
It seems that both eth0 and eth1 are recognised at boot time but they both seem to have the same MAC address, which is wierd. I have checked all the logs I can find and see no reason why this should be.
It would explain why I am having some networking issues and probably why eth0 is getting wrongly identified as rename2, but not why the boot/install cd sees both IF's with different MACs.

I'm also no further forward in finding an answer.

Anyone able to assist at all?
