Trouble with udev rule for network interace naming

https://bbs.archlinux.org – This is a known limitation, and cannot be fixed. Changing the kernel names is fundamentally racy (if you rename eth0 to wlan0 and another card with name wlan0 appears in the middle of this, you get trouble, etc).What can work is to rename everything to names outside of the kernel's namespace (i.e. avoid ethX and wlanY, and use netZ or something like that). tomegun https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=37471 2012-08-11T16:05:09Z (HowTos)
