Hi there,

I just did a new installation (no upgrade this time) and was kind of
surprised to see the network device name is "eth0" again.

I thought that we switched to the so called "predictable network device
names" quite some time ago. Not that I don't like to see "eth0" again
(by default - on my other systems I had to apply manual changes in order
to stick with the former names), but I thought I'd ask if this change of
policy happened intentionally.


Err, I don't think this was intentional...?

Or he magically installed udev-persistent-ifnames.

No way, I just accepted the proposal related to "*Server*" whats'o'ever
role. And, indeed, these are the only packages with udev in their name:

udev-234-lp151.25.4.x86_64
udev-configure-printer-1.5.7-lp151.6.3.x86_64
libudev1-234-lp151.25.4.x86_64

Cheers.
