Fix eth0 on fresh install of Debian 9

April 24, 2018

You can disable these stable names and go back to the kernel-provided ones
(which don’t have a stable order) in one of two ways:

– Put “net.ifnames=0” into the kernel command line (e. g. in
/etc/default/grub’s GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, then run “update-grub”).

– Disable the default *.link rules with
“ln -s /dev/null /etc/systemd/network/99-default.link”
and rebuild the initrd with “update-initramfs -u”.
The above is from a debian readme file.
