[Mageia-dev] Order of nics when multiple network interfaces detected.

In Mageia 1, which nic is assigned eth0 or eth1 etc, is controlled
by /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.

In beta 1, /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules is not being
created, although I can't figure out why as
/usr/lib/libDrakX/network/connection/ethernet.pm has not been

I've also noticed that dracut doesn't include
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules in the initrd,
if it does exist.

Is there some new method systemd is supposed to be using
to control the order of nic assignments?

As per https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4352 it
isn't working.

I can't see what's change to prevent the rule from being created,
so I don't know which rpm package the bug report should be for.

Can someone who knows this part take a look?

Thanks, Dave Hodgins
