    Hi all,
    I have a curiosity about the 1.3 version. Why connection devices are renamed?
    eth0 -> eth2
    wlan0->wlan6

    Thanks

    That should be a kernel modules fault. They assign random IDs to the connection devices . Don't worry we'll fix this one in the next release.

    I have also the same issue with the 1.3 image.

    I can't put a static ip adress in /etc/network/interfaces because of this.

    No way to fix that manualy before the next release?

    you should be able to adjust the definition in the interfaces file, or even rename the interfaces in the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file
