Re: Another Network Manager Stupidity: Swapping eth0 and eth1

I had a similar problem but not NM related when I
added two 1GB nics to a box that had a 100MB onboard nic.
I wanted the two 1GB nics to be eth0 and eth1 but
the onboard nic would always revert to eth0 on reboot.
I could bind them with system-config-network but could not
get them to stay ordered to my preference.

I added the aliases to modprobe.conf to solved this issue.

alias eth0 r8169
alias eth1 r8169
alias eth2 e100

I found that this trick did not work reliably. After enough reboots, the device mapping would change in spite of the aliases. The initscripts update in updates-testing will fix the problem once and for all.
