Re: Bug#765577: udev-udeb: Write dupliate entries into 70-persistent-net.rules

Hi all,

Petter and Michael, thanks for your work on this!

I'm able to reproduce this bug consistently (100% of the time, having
run ~40 installations in the past week that exhibit it) with the
following steps:

1. PXE boot a jessie netboot image (latest daily build, for example)
2. Add auto=true to the install menu option and run it.
3. Stop the installation (or switch to another TTY) and look at
   /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules (in the installer
   environment, not under /target). The duplicate entry is present
   already, and will make its way into the target system during

The entry always appears for me when I use auto=true. I have not seen it
appear without this option, but I haven't tested non-auto installs

It happens even if we temporarily disable d-i preseeding from our DHCP

It's possible that all of the hardware I'm testing on is too fast, but
having performed many installs, I'm yet to see this not happen when
auto=true is set.

I've tested jessie installs on about 20 different systems (mix of ~15
new and old desktops, plus some KVM and VirtualBox guests), and seen
this happen reliably on all of them.

I wasn't able to narrow down the source of the duplicate entries in the
code, despite some attempts at bisecting what I was hoping might be
relevent parts of d-i.

CCing debian-boot and adding the d-i tag, as I believe there's a good
chance it is relevant to this bug. Apologies if that's unnecessary!

Thanks and happy Monday,
