Predictable Network Interface names


Recommended Posts



I just installed Armbian on my Tinker board. 

I use the internal wifi and another wifi usb dongle (static ip).

The wifi usb receives a name wlx**** in ifconfig and the internal wifi module has wlan0.

I want to have wlan1 instead of wlx***.

So I checked https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames/

Tried the option using dev/null and setting the net.ifnames parameter.

I tried in /boot/ArmBianEnv.txt to set net.ifnames=0 parameter.

Nothing works.


Would be happy, if someone knows how to change this on Armbian.

Thank you very much

Hi, i want to use systemd-networkd, systemd-resolved and the Predictable Network Interface names on my odroid-c2 with Armbian_5.35_Odroidc2_Debian_jessie_default_3.14.79

I don't find /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf and how to obtain predictable network interface names ? In boot/boot.ini at Boot arguments and at Mainline boot arguments
=>  net.ifnames=1

I rename too /etc/network/ and /etc/network.d
