Fedora 15 - biosdevname version updated to latest upstream
Biosdevname version is updated from¬* 0.3.7 to latest upstream in Fedora 15. Please expect the following change -
The naming for PCI add-on devices is changed from pci<slot number>p<port number>_<virtual function instance> to p<slot number>p<port number>_<virtual function instance>.¬* If you are upgrading to F15 from F15-alpha or F15-beta, you could encounter following issue ¬*‚Äď
"/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth: Device pci5p1 does not
seem to be present, delaying initialization."
The¬* config¬* files under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ are of the form ‚Äúifcfg-pciXpY‚ÄĚ and the ‚ÄúDEVICE=‚ÄĚ ¬*directive will have pciXpY names when F15-Beta is installed. As the interface name changes
when upgraded to F15, the ifcfg-* files and DEVICE= field remain same causing this issue.
Please rename the ifcfg-pciXpY files to ifcfg-pXpY and change the DEVICE= ¬*field from pciXpY to ¬*pXpY before reboot to avoid the issue.
