Re: FC3 and 2 net interfaces :-(


I have the same network cards and had the same problem.

For me I finally fixed it by
nuking /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, /etc/modprobe.conf, and rebooting
(I think)

I also had to blow away the existing network-scripts/ifcfg-eth[01] I

Anyway, basically rebooting with all the old cruft removed seemed to fix
it. It's still a bug, I'm just giving you a workaround. You might save
the old cruft for bug report purposes.
