[Raspberry Pi 400] Why is wifi interface named wlan1 on the Pi400?

Hi there,

I use Devuan on both Pi4b and Pi400, in aarch64 mode.
In both cases, I manually load the bcrmfmac module when it's needed.
The problem is that the WIFI interface is named WLAN0 on the Pi4b but it's named WLAN1 on the Pi400, and that breaks some of my scripts.

So, what could be at play here? Any clues?

Thanks!

Can't imagine why.

But check this and see if there's something there: https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkInterfaceNames
eg: the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file in each one of the installations and compare them.

Best,

A.

Well if you were using systemd you could just add net.ifnames=0 to the cmdline. But as this isn't an option on Devuan, you would need to play around with the udev rules.

sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-setup-link.rules <<EOF

SUBSYSTEM!="net", GOTO="net_setup_link_end"

IMPORT{builtin}="path_id"

ACTION!="add", GOTO="net_setup_link_end"

# IMPORT{builtin}="net_setup_link"

NAME=="", ENV{ID_NET_NAME}!="", NAME="wlan0"

LABEL="net_setup_link_end"
EOF

I use a rule like this to insure the ethernet interface comes up as eth0 on Pi3's.
