upgrade from Intrepid to Jaunty via alternate iso dpkg backed up /etc/modprobe.d/aliases

Bug #366679 reported by CFMunster on 2009-04-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I performed an upgrade of an 8.10 system to 9.04 via the alternate CD iso. The server being upgraded used a bonded interface of two NICs in a similar configuration like in this document:

Append the following to /etc/modprobe.d/aliases:

alias bond0 bonding
options bonding mode=0 miimon=100 downdelay=200 updelay=200

The aliases file seems to have been renamed to dpkg-aliases.bak. I copied the file back to aliases and rebooted and went back to normal.

For clarity, the network configuration on the bonded interface is something like this (also from the NFS document):

Modify our network configuration and assign eth0 and eth1 as slaves of bond0. Example /etc/network/interfaces:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The user-accessible network interface
auto bond0
iface bond0 inet static
        up /sbin/ifenslave bond0 eth0
        up /sbin/ifenslave bond0 eth1
