Udev and its traps

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

I’ve got 3 network interfaces and I wanted them to have consistent names across reboots. I read somewhere that this can be achieved with udev by adding a small script

angband:/home/leszek# cat /etc/udev/netinterfaces.rules

and a link to it

angband:/etc/udev/rules.d# ls -l /etc/udev/rules.d/ | grep netinterfaces
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2006-03-04 23:00 010_netinterfaces.rules -> ../netinterfaces.rules

… turns out the above is not entirely correct.
