Description diego.santacruz 2002-10-15 08:53:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809 Description of problem: neat will always configure a device in /etc/modules.conf for a PCMCIA network card. This is not correct for PCMCIA, where the modules are loaded by the cardmgr daemon. If several different PCMCIA network cards are used, neat will complain (in some profiles) that eth0 is an alias to the wrong module. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): redhat-config-network-1.1.20-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure a network device eth0 for a PCMCIA ethernet card (say using xircom_cs module) 2. In a new profile configure configure a net device eth0 for a PCMCIA wireless card (say using orinoco_cs module) 3. exit neat 4. insert the ethernet PCMCIA card 5. start neat Actual Results: neat will complain that eth0 is an alias for orinoco_cs instead of the currently loaded xircom_cs module. Expected Results: No module aliases are created for PCMCIA cards. Additional info: Since PCMCIA cards are hotpluggable and the correct module is chosen by the cardmgr daemon, neat should never set a module alias for a PCMCIA ethernet card. Setting a module alias is asking for trouble whenever one inserts a different PCMCIA network card that requires another module.

you can assign the cards to different eth numbers, if you bind them to the mac-addresses
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-02-04 16:57:37 UTC
fixed in CVS 1.1.95
Comment 3 diego.santacruz 2003-02-04 17:03:25 UTC
Concerning the comment about assigning cards different eth numbers, last time I checked it does not work. The problem is basically that when the PCMCIA card is inserted it will appear as eth0 and hotplug will do an "ifup eth0". If the card was configured as eth1, well out-of-luck the interface will not be brought up. And binding to the MAC address does not work, see bug #75570. Besides this, I think that adding aliases in /etc/modules.conf for PCMCIA cards is basically broken behaviour, as that info is never used and causes more trouble than anything else.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 15:25:34 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-06 23:55:04 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was first requested. As a result we are closing it. If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora version please feel free to reopen it against that version. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp
