    p4p1 instead of eth0

    hey everyone, i have installed a ubuntu server to my laptop (not a virtual machine)

    it is for hosting a website just for fun (i know of security risks etc, just give me an answer instead of a load of off topic replies please)

    my network card is p4p1 but it needs to be eth0, how do i change it please?

    im attempting to help you, this is free help and you shouldn't expect immediate answers, if that's what you want you should go check out the ubuntu irc channel. From all my research this appears to be a Fedora issue.

    Whcih version of Ubuntu Server did you install?

    also, from a terminal, what does this return?
    Code:
    sudo aptitude show biosdevname

    thanks, i thought you had gone

    i installed 12.10

    the command showed
    Code:
    package: (the package)
    state: installed
    automatically installed: no
    versionL 0.4.1-0ubuntu3
    priority: optional
    section: misc
    maintainer: colin watson
    architecture: amd64
    uncompressed size: 100k
    depends: libc6 (>=2.14), libpci3 (>= 1:3.1.9-2), udev
    description: apply BIOS-given names to network devices
     biosdevname in its simplest form takes a kernal device name as an argument, and returns the BIOS-given name it "should" be
    
    this is necessary on system where the BIOS name for a given device (e.g the label on the chassis is "Gb1") dosent map directly and obviously to the kernel name (e.g eth0)
    
    thiss also works as a straight udev rule, which is provided

    Re: p4p1 instead of eth0

    did you install that package? YOu must of because it says it's NOT installed automatically. Everything I am finding is that you should uninstall that package and also remove this file /lib/udev/rules.d/71-biosdevname.rules


    your milage may vary and I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong.

    I will be honest and say that I have no experience at all with this issue and am shocked it's happening to you as I have found no other Ubuntu users anywhere within google search results that have this same issue.

    GOod luck

    relax, i am subscribed to this thread so when someone replies I am notified. Im not going anywhere BUT if you don't get a response that doesn't mean you bump your own thread after 5 minutes. THere's forum ettiquete which means you wait for a response at least 24 hours before bumping. as i said, if you really want instant support, ubuntu IRC channel which be much better for that.
