Network Card Interfaces Detection (openSuse 11.0)


I have 2 NICs on the system and sometimes, one of the NICs cannot be detected by the system during the installation process.

So at Network Settings step, there are times that not all of the interfaces can be edited. Instead of showing the MAC address of the interface, it says “no hardware info”.

Why all the NICs can’t be picked up all the time but only sometimes?
