udev: eth0 stopped working - renamed to eth2


After putting new ethernet cards my ubuntu renamed eth0 to eth2 and eth1 to eth3. I wanted to have my old names back.

in dmesg there was:

eth0 –> renamed to eth2.

All you have to do is delete all old entries in:

and you’ll have eth0 and eth1 names back.
