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.

If I'm not wrong, predictable network interface names is enabled by
default in TW but that should not be the case in Leap which uses
persistent network names.

but, where did these "persistent" network names come from then? As I
wrote, this was a *new installation* without any reference to former
installations, so I cannot imagine, where this notion of eth0 comes
from... Yes, I know, bus enumeration, speed of devices to respond etc.,
but what does this have to do with "persistent network names" in a new

Hmm, yes, I think I can imagine what "persistent network names" means...
Just follow what had been found during installation... Dunno what sense
this makes, as after a reboot, eth0 and eth1 usually got swapped in the
past. OK, anyhow/way/...
