I've done that on a couple boxes here -- a laptop (WiFi and an
Ethernet) and a workstation (2 Ethernets)
On both of them, I wrote a /etc/network/interfaces script to give an
IP to the Ethernet and start at boot. The others are DHCP and don't
come on at boot.
I wrote a little shell script that ifup's the DHCP, and enters a few
things into the routing table (the DHCP is to Comcast, so I have to do
a little cleaning up afterward to replace the garbage Comcast puts on
The machines run reliably with both connections up: Comcast for
blistering speed from the mirrors in the apt/sources lists, and my T1
for the real 'Net.
I'm on Buster too, BTW.
