We are happy to announce that we have just pushed a new Arch image, updating it to the 2016.06.01 “release”. This image disables the predictable network interface naming convention using the suggested udev mask, so the default ethernet name is returned to eth0.
If you currently rely on predictable interface naming for any of your Linodes running Arch, make sure to update your configuration scripts before deploying from the newest image. If you want to read more about this configuration or static networking, see the documentation on freedesktop.org, or consult our Static IP Configuration guide. Alternately, you can let Network Helper configure your IP addresses statically for you.
