Re: About Debian edu manual terminology, etc.

To: Debian Edu team

I started building my isolated Debian Edu Buster env,
then I got a trouble around gateway.
(I have to start with gateway by personal issue)

It's about NIC name rules. ethN -> enpxxx

I'm not sure but I think Linus said something like "Just code it."

So I attach my "gateway's /etc/network/interfaces generator"

It's a bash script.

Tested on my new gateway Debian Edu Buster Minimal machine,
amd64(Kaby Lake) dual NIC.

It seems any other part works fine.
I only edit /etc/network/interfaces.

I'm now LAN cable shortage and not tested LAN side.
Just did some minimum tests. Apology for that.


And this is also a re-sending message, as shown below.

    Both Stretch and Buster now uses enpXsYfZ styles.
    Will it be changed?


I tried Debian Edu Buster 2019-05-06 netinst,
Minimal Profile install on my amd64 dual NIC machine
to make it my gateway.

eth0 and eth1 is preconfigured in /etc/network/interfaces,
but they fail when "service networking start".

/sys/class/net shows the NICs as "enp0s31f6" and "enp1s0".

I replaced eth0 and eth1 by them. Then it works.

  WAN side: I confirmed by apt update.
  LAN side: not yet
  NAT: "systemctl status enable-nat.service" shows "active"

Perhaps the manual and scripts should mention about it.

yes, seems so.

What I'm considering now is something like this.

$ find /sys/class/net ! -name net -a ! -name lo -exec basename \[\} \;
$ # and some more automated /etc/network/interfaces settings.
# cp new-interfaces /etc/network/interfaces
# service networking stop # and go on

Since I just now have the gateway only,
I have no idea about this issue; I send this mail only for you.

please resend to the list, this is a good question and I wont have time
to reply in the next 24h, sorry. (also for this very brief email!)

Thank you for your quick and precise reply, Holger Levsen.
