Re: [opensuse-factory] 13.1 - why network eth0 is named instead ens33?
On 2013-09-28 18:34 (GMT+0400) Andrey Borzenkov composed:

What makes ens33 more absurd than eth0?

Eth0 is easily recognizable by all familiar with traditional networking, without eidedic memory, and without requiring a lookup table.

Maximum predictability here means every installation under the same roof uses the same name for the first (and only) *E*T*H*ernet port for it's reserved IP address.

One possibility is to add net.ifnames=0 to kernel command line.

When? On every boot? Only on boots on which zypper or yast will be installing updates? Only at initial installation? Does it need to be in /etc/sysconfig/bootloader too?
