    Default point 2.1 leap42 release notes :Network Interface Names

    I'm trying to upgrade to leap42 from 13.2.
    reading the release notes I found this:
    2.1 Network Interface Names #




    When upgrading a remote machine from openSUSE 13.2, make sure your network interfaces are named correctly.
    openSUSE 13.2 used so-called predictable network interface names (for example, enp5s0), whereas Leap 42.1 uses persistent interface names (eth0). After upgrading and rebooting, the network interface names may therefore change. This could lock you out of the system. To avoid interfaces from being renamed, run the following command for each of your network interfaces before you reboot the system:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/udev/udev-generate-persistent-rule -v -c enp5s0 -n enp5s0 -o /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    Replace enp5s0 with the name of your network interface.
    my question is:
    1)how can I know each of my network interfaces name??
    2)the command
    Code:
    /usr/lib/udev/udev-generate-persistent-rule -v -c enp5s0 -n enp5s0 -o /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    has to be ran in 13.2 before to upgrade to leap42 or after upgrade and before reboot??

    manythanks :-) ciao :-) pier

    Get them before you upgrade eg
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --netcard

    pla@suseST-pla:~>
    so I suppose I have only these three:
    em1
    lo
    wlan0
    ...also "lo" has to be included??
    but, the command
    Code:
    /usr/lib/udev/udev-generate-persistent-rule -v -c enp5s0 -n enp5s0 -o /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    has to be ran in 13.2 before to upgrade to leap42 or after upgrade and before reboot??

    No, lo represents the loopback network interface and remains as is.
