Re: FC3 and 2 net interfaces :-(



Havoc, I think this is 2 problems:

1) airo driver refuses to be eth1 dynamically, or the kernel should
manage to not let 2 drivers allocate the same "eth0".
2) kudzu is broken

I'm stable now probably with the same manual solution you guys did:
Edited by hand modprobe to make airo allways eth0. I'm not rebooting
too much, so I don't know what kudzu will do next time. I'll probably
disable it, cause I'm not planning to install a TV board in my laptop
:D

Do you have an IBM T40 too ?
If so, I have other minor issues with mine, like ACPI, etc, so we can
have a look on them in private, if you don't mind...

Regards,
Avi
