Re: Strange Kudzu Behavior



Hello Pyroman,

One would expect that system-config-network overwrites
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf if you change these settings. I guess it is not.

Edit /etc/sysconfig/hwconf by hand and see if that changes the boot
behaviour. If so file a bug report against system-config-network and
state that it should update /etc/sysconfig/hwconf if you change the
order/naming of the nics.
