My default cable network interface is called eth1 by LMDE (XFCE). That's fine for me and my network is working very well.
However, I have some awkward (proprietary) software (which I have to use for professional reasons) that requires activating, and this process won't complete without an eth0 network interface!
I have found solutions involving the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. I have tried to edit it and set the name for my ethernet card back to eth0. But no luck, it's still called eth1 when I restart.
What am I missing?
TIA, regards - Daniel
