ethX increments at each kernel update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Under RHEL6 with Linux IC 3.1, 3.2 & 3.3 using DKMS, each time I update the kernel, my network interface name increments (eth1 becomes eth2...). This is very annoying as I lose network connection after each update. I don't understand why this number increases. This wasn't happening with RHEL5 and LinuxIC 2.1. Any clue?
