eth0 and eth1 shifting place
I have a computer with an AMD Athlon XP 2000+, 256mb ram, Nvidia GeForce2
and two ethernet adapters. One D-link DC21041 Tulip (PCI) and one onboard
(Chaintech motherboard) ethernet adapter called Via Rhine II (6103).
During the installation (netinst) Debian finds both of the cards and gives
the D-link the name eth0 and Via Rhine II (onboard) eth1 and it gets
DHCP-information without any problems.
After the basic installation is done and the system is rebooting and starts
up again to finish the installation the both ethernet adapters have turned
names. The D-link is now eth1 and the Via Rhine II is now eth0 which
results in no network-connection for the ftp-installation.
I tried to choose eth0 (D-link) at the basic installation and then reboot
and change the cable to the Via Rhine II which gets the name eth0 after
installation. The problem is that the Via Rhine II has serious problems
connecting to the internet after the installation and can hardly connect to
the debian-FTP. Both the D-link and the Via Rhine II is working properly in
WinXP, Solaris 10 x86 and also in Debian Woody so there's no hardware
problems with the adapters.
You guys got any ideas about this? And maybe any tips to solve the issue?
