Red Hat :: Change Eth1 To Eth0 ?Jun 22, 2010
I'd like to ask you all for a simple thing on Slackware that I dont know how to do under RHEL 5.4.
Under Slackware 12.2 it is easy to change eth0 to eth1.
This should be done in file: /etc/udev/rules.d/75-network-devices.rules:
Well, under Red Hat it looks slight diffrent. It looks like RHEL does not use udev ( correct me if i am wrong but there is no simillar file in /etc/udev/rules.d and cant see any script in /etc/init.d/).
I have found that all NIC configuration is stored in /etc/sysconfig/netwotk-scripts/ifcfg-ethx.
On this file it is possible to place varible: HARDWARE=
However after reboot it doesnt work. So, my question is - how to assign eth[number] to specified MAC-addr ?
