I have just bought a system with an Intel DG965RY mobo. I am using the e1000 module for networking. Networking works fine when I use an x86_64 installation, but when I use an almost identical kernel configuration on and x86 installation, networking fails. eg.

What is the output of "ifconfig -a" ? From your logs, the card is detected, so the interface should exist in there. Maybe it just has another name. Sometimes udev can mess with interface names.

Thanks. I now have and eth7 and an eth8.

Is it possible to alter the udev rules so I get my eth0 back again?

First remove all the entries in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and reboot. It should "reset" all the interfaces to their normal number.

Many thanks. That's solved a big mystery about migrating Linux to other hardware.
