[Bug 809843] Random eth0/eth1 name space with two Ethernet driver modules

--- Comment #24 from Robert Milasan <rmilasan@xxxxxxxx> 2013-03-20 07:04:18 UTC
OK, seems the bringing back persistent rules is the only way to fix it. So for
openSUSE 12.3 that will be the fix I guess. As biosdevname doesn't work
properly, so we can't rely on it, plus back-porting net_id (way too much and
intrusive), I guess I'll try to bring back the persistent rule and will give
you some test rpm's to see if all works.

The next release of openSUSE will contain all necessary parts (net_id, hwdb) so
we can really drop persistent rules, but until then don't think there is
another way.

Werner, your idea with the small script is good, but this means that ifcfg-eth*
has to be created before and a lot of people may not know how or yast2-network
has to be modified, so for the moment, don't think is worth doing it, but your
idea has been implemented by Fedora with something called "rename_devices".

I don't like this, but don't see how else we could fix this fast. If anyone has
a better idea, please speak out :)
