Buster, computer with MAC identified Ethernet ports
Is there a way to relabel Ethernet ports? Without changing things in a
number of config files?
I see on the web that changing udev used to do that, but now there are
at least 2 files to modify.
I'm gently moving to a new ISP, and I'm trying to set up new, virtual IP
addresses on my Enet ports. Webmin tells me that enp0s31f6 is too long.
I could do it in /etc/network/interfaces, but Webmin does all that quite
painlessly. Without typos.
I'd like to replace the /dev/random names with something understandable
to a mortal.
I was thinking of creating an alias in /dev pointing eth0 at enp0s31f6.
But where to put it? .bashrc would be convenient, but it'd be too late.
In an init file? Is the s.*d word going to do init files forever?
