QA:Testcase biosdevname NIC naming after install
This test case makes sure that during Rawhide installation, network interfaces, both onboard and PCI add-in are named as per the new convention.
- Make sure that the Hardware Requirements are met.
How to test
1.Start the Rawhide instllation by booting into the
boot.iso from <here>
2.In the welcome screen, press TAB to edit the grub command line and append
to get the repository from one of the interfaces. More information about using repo is here
3.Just after the initial configurations, when Graphical User Interface comes up, switch to a shell by pressing
4.Verify that onboard network interfaces are named as described here
5.Verify that PCI add-in network interfaces are described here
6.Click on “Configure Network” in the hostname configuration wizard. Here all the interfaces (em#, pci<slot>#<port>) should be displayed. Configure the interface which has network cable connected.
7.Complete the installation process, after the system reboots, login to the system.
- Make sure that onboard device names are of the form emN during install time
[root@fedora-14-r710 ~]# ls /sys/class/net/ em1 em2 em3 em4 lo
- Make sure that PCI add-in device names are of the form pci<slot>#<port> during install time
#[root@fedora-14-r710 ~]# ls /sys/class/net/ lo pci3#1 pci3#2 pci4#1
- Make sure ifcfg-emN and ifcfg-pci<slot>#<port> files are created under the dir
/etc/sysconfig/network-scriptsafter the installation is complete.
