BUG Report: 64-current (july 18th) - eth0 renamed eth1


Just done a completely clean install of 64-current to a spare partition to take a look at the latest updates. Specified a "static" network config via the netconfig dialog and on reboot found that the network hadn't come up.

Spotted this in dmesg:
Code:
[   10.410796] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: (PCI Express:2.5GT/s:Width x1) 00:21:24:11:7e:3b
[   10.410906] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Intel(R) PRO/10/100 Network Connection
[   10.410991] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: MAC: 7, PHY: 7, PBA No: FFFFFF-0FF
[   18.551124] udevd[1685]: renamed network interface eth0 to eth1
... which means that rc.inet1 ends up with a config for eth0 but no eth0 to use it on.

/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules contains:
Code:
# PCI device 0x8086:/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:19.0 (e1000e)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:21:24:11:7e:3b", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

# USB device 0x13d3:0x3247 (usb)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:22:43:54:76:25", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="wlan*", NAME="wlan0"

# USB device 0x13d3:0x3247 (usb)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:22:43:54:76:25", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="wlan*", NAME="wlan1"

# PCI device 0x8086:/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:19.0 (e1000e)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:21:24:11:7e:3b", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth1"
... so it looks like the same thing is also happening with my wlan card.

Deleting the the persistent rules file results in the same duplication when it is regenerated during boot so it looks to be repeatable.

I'm booting generic + initrd. Can't test without a initrd as my install is in an lvm vg.

The fix for me was:

Don't delete /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
Just delete the rules that don't apply to your card.
per a post on linuxquestions.org by user inph
It worked for me
I have also reported this to PV. He is aware and working on a patch
thanks
john

The reasons I deleted the whole thing was to check that the duplicates would be regenerated and ensure it wasn't a one off before reporting it. I'd already deleted the duplicate rules so the workaround is already in-place.

I wasn't aware this was a known/reported problem though so thanks for letting me know.
