Re: Testing debian live beta, udev issue
First of all: Thanks for your hard work, i appreciate it.
I tested the xfce-iso from
too. Using a Dell Lattitude C840 i had to face strange udev behavior
with my two 3c905 (notebook and dockingstation): eth0 was renamed to
eth0_something, eth1 got installed, both were not running. Using
dhclient, i didn't get connection. Doing rmmod 3c59x, cleaning
/etc/udev/rules.d/*persistent-net.rules, modprobe 3c59x, dhclient,
resulted in having connection to my network.
For more tests i had no time.

I booted both the xfce and "standard" non-graphical .iso images using
VirtualBox, on an up-to-date Sid system.
With both, udev renamed eth0 (the built-in network adapter) as eth1,
which then caused the automatic network provisioning to fail, since
it is looking for eth0.
Did you tested downloaded images or do you built them by yourself?
I ask that because there was a fixed-in-git-but-not-in-unstable bug related to
udev and network interfaces which happens when build and built system have
different version of udev causeing the /etc/udev/rules.d/*-persistent-
net.rules to be inherited from the build system. This could cause renames of
eth0 at boot time.
A fix for that is in git. You may want to update live-helper to latest git and
rebuild your images.
