    Hi All

    I am installing Fedora 15 on a Dell Dimension 5150C with one single ethernet card. I am following the Perfect Fedora 15 instructions whilst doing the installation.
    I have added biosdevname=0 in /etc/grub.conf as one of the kernel params. After reboot, the interface name is still showing as em1 and not eth0.

    Anybody have any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

    Regards

    Mike

    Can you post your /etc/grub.conf?

    my grub.conf

    Code:
    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
    #          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
    #          root (hd0,0)
    #          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_belle-lv_root
    #          initrd /initrd-[generic-]version.img
    #boot=/dev/sda
    default=0
    timeout=0
    splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

    Looks ok. This is what I found on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ConsistentNetworkDeviceNaming :

    Maybe you should try to modify /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.

    You also need to edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.

    Change the 'name' variable to eth0 and you should be OK.
