    Network interface names


    I have been using Sabayon on my laptop since I have it, ca.6 to 8 months.

    On my laptop the network interfaces are named as I am used to seeing, eth0 and wlan0.

    So the other day I decided to boot into the live DVD on my desktop. Looking for the network interface I seen enp7s4 as my network interface. Why was it not eth0? Or am I missing something here?

    Regards

    Im not familiar with this distribution, but could be caused by udev rules.

    This must have been just for the live CD. I installed on my box and the interfaces are eth0-4. Thnx
