This will benefit a general readership, as well as you looking towards Archnosh 1.35.
When you upgrade to 1.35, there will be two ways of configuring
things. You can either write a Debian-style /etc/network/interfaces
file, or you can employ a FreeBSD-like rc.conf. Both
styles will work on FreeBSD, TrueOS, Debian, and (I hope) Arch.
The former you will find is translated into the latter. For more
detail on that translation process, see the new doco. Here is an
example from one of my machines.
jdebp % cat /etc/network/interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface lo inet static address 127.53.53.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 scope host iface lo inet6 loopback iface lo inet6 static address ::2/128 scope host allow-auto eth1 iface eth1 inet dhcp iface eth1 inet6 auto allow-auto rename2 iface rename2 inet dhcp iface rename2 inet6 auto jdebp % sed -ne '/etc.network.interfaces/,/console-setup:/p' /etc/system-control/convert/rc.conf # Converted from /etc/network/interfaces: network_interfaces="eth1 rename2 lo " ifconfig_eth1="AUTO DHCP inet " ifconfig_rename2="AUTO DHCP inet " ifconfig_lo="AUTO inet 127.0.0.1 " ifconfig_lo_ipv6="inet6 ::1 " ifconfig_lo_aliases="inet 127.53.53.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 inet6 ::2/128" # Converted from /etc/default/console-setup: jdebp %
