forcedeth problem on M3N78 (MCP78)
 
Hi,

I have a problem here. The forcedeth modul loads without errors.
But the device eth0 cant't be found afterwards. dmesg has revealed to me that udev has renamed the device eth0 to eth2. Is there an explanation for this? And how can I force the name of my one and only NIC to be eth0?

well, this depends on your distro...
in debian (an maybe Ubuntu), you should take a look into /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules .
it's pretty obvious then what you have to do, if not... attach it!

Thanks that helped!

distro is Fedora8
The rules where in: /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

eth0 and eth1 where the two NIC's from my old board.

Is there a better way to move an installation form one board to another?
I mean without leaving such garbage behind (and without a fresh install ;))

I'm not aware of anything like that... maybe could be a new entry for udev's wishlist? ;)

I'm not sure if I have the same network problem but I I can't get the onboard networking to work on my M3N78-EMH M/B running Ubuntu 8.04. Setup by the gui for DHCP there seems to be a device eth2:avahi with a network address of 169.254.7.107 whereas it should be in the 192.168 range. If I try another Intel chip NIC it all works as expected with or without disabing the LAN in the BIOS. The onboard network device seems to decide the eth2:avahi is IPV6 (from syslog)? Any ideas as to how to get the onboard networking to work would be appreciated.
