Bug#442436: debian-installer: sets up firewire as eth0
First, kudos on the graphical installer. It went
I have an Intel G3-based motherboard with both 8169 ethernet and
firewire. The installer offers firewire as the first choice for
network, despite the fact that I had a live ethernet connection
plugged into the ethernet jack.
After installing and booting into the new system, I found that the
ethernet port was configured as eth1 instead of eth0.
This seems counter-intuitive. I must admit I wasn't even aware you
could do tcp-ip networking over firewire.
