Hi, ALL,
I'm doing installation of Gentoo in a VirtualBox.

One thing that confused me is that upon booting the CD the network interface was not named "eth{0}", but something like "smp3t0".

Is it normal? Is it how newest udev calls network interfaces? Will the name be kept in the installation?

Thank you.

yeah its normal.... udev persistent naming... you can turn it off in your instillation by

Code:

su -c 'touch /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules'


and possibly turn it off on your install media by doing the same.... (pro tip of the day, i use xubuntu 12.04 to install in style, with network manager to auto deal with the networking & wifi connections if need be... firefox to read documentation & handbook, apt-get flash for youtube, hexchat (or xchat) for irc problem solving, and pidgin to stay connected to friends in instant messaging protocols.)
