Tags laptop, linux

I'm using Linux on more than a dozen (previously 2) own laptops and have installations running on 6 (previously 3) others.

One is a 7 year old siemens-nixdorf laptop used by a retired person for internet e-mail and a bit of card games. He loves it for the speed and ease of use. Especially the order of the programs in the very simple groups such as "Internet" "Multimedia" etc.

Static network config not based on interface name or MAC address

Posted 04-08-2012 at 04:57 PM by Skaperen

Traditionally, static configurations of IP addresses were made based on the interface names, which were always constant.
