Hi, After installing Etch on my AMD64 machine I suddenly have an extra eth1 without actually having an NIC. I cannot activate it in the "Network settings" applet but it is shown during boot and in the output of ifconfig (without ip address). Can anyone give me clue as to where this eth1 is comming from ? Is that related to my next question (IP6)? Or maybe firewire ? I also have a "sit0" which appears to be a IPv6-in-IPv4 address. Is that correct? IS there any documentation available a to why that is (I have nothing configured myself, there is nothing about IP6 I can find on my machine)?
Probably firewire. Have a loog at dmesg, you should have something like that: eth1394: $Rev: 1312 $ Ben Collins <firstname.lastname@example.org> eth1394: eth2: IEEE-1394 IPv4 over 1394 Ethernet (fw-host0)
