the future of pain

Okay this is intensely stupid because debian

network card assignment is being random, because debian

i'm blacklisting the drivers and trying to load them in /etc/modules in correct order so the device assignment is consistent

i blacklist e1000e and r8169 (so they don't autoload)

and then have them both in /etc/modules so they do load in a specific order, r8169 then e1000e

e1000e loads

r8169 doesn't

modprobe r8169 loads fine

what. the. fuck. do. i. do. here.

For the sake of science, does it work if you reverse them? I know it isn't your goal, but is it that the /etc/modules method is broken somehow vs the fact that it works when you do the modprobe manually?

I agree with the person on FB who said "put the modprobe commands in /etc/rc.local."
