           Summary: two different network devices show as if they were the
                    same type
           Product: openSUSE 10.3
           Version: Beta 2
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: YaST2
        AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

          Found By: Development


I did a fresh install of openSUSE 10.3 Beta 2. 
I have two network devices: one AMD8111 (which is onboard and I don't need to
configure it) and one RTL8169 (which is plugged in the LAN).

The kernel correctly identified them. It assigned eth0 to the RTL-8169 and eth1
to the AMD8111.

In the Network Interfaces dialog during installation, however, I saw:

Network Interfaces:
 - Realtek RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet
   Configured with DHCP
 - Realtek RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet
   Not configured yet

I.e. YaST thinks that I have two identical network cards. Then starting the
network service timed out on configuring eth1 with DHCP, because eth1 is not
connected. I wanted eth0 (the RTL-8169) to be configured with DHCP.

The next thing I did was to delete the configuration of the interface it showed
as "Configured with DHCP". As soon as I pressed the button, that interface
changed to "AMD 8111 Ethernet ... / Not configured yet".

After that, I set the other device for DHCP and all went OK.
