After updating the system (update to new udev), the network does not run anymore because eth0 is gone. :evil:
Looking into /var/log/messages I find:
Code:
udev: renamed network interface eth0 to eth1

And the problem is found. 8O
However how to get rid of it :?:

Thanks to knoppix I can send out this post :?

Ok that was easy :lol:

I had in the past difficulties with the 1000Mbit Ethernet device on the motherboard, so I plugged in a 100Mbit Ethernet card. After I managed to run the 1000Mbit Ethernet on the motherboard, I removed the 100Mbit Ethernet card and everything worked fine for almost a year. 8)

Now, somehow my computer remembers about the 100Mbit Ethernet card and named it eth0. The file to be cleaned was:
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

I simply deleted the old card and renamed the 1000Mbit Ethernet eth0.
