I'm having an issue which isn't really critical, but is a minor annoyance. My kernel appears to be assigning odd names to my devices. More specifically, what is normally /dev/md0 has become /dev/md126, eth0 is named enp2s3, and wlan0 is wlp2s6. I'm using a stock kernel, version 3.2.45. So far my reading has given some indication that changing udev rules may help me out, but that's all I got so far. Anyone pointers are much appreciated!

it might be related to something called "the new predictable interface names", recently there was a portage news item about that if i remember correctly.

Code:
touch /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules
will restore the old net names after a reboot

That is to restore the old behaviour of udev. They might not support this forever, you may want to live with the new interface names as well.
