    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?

    Can you post your /etc/grub.conf?

    my grub.conf

    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.

    Is there a rule for each ethernet device?
