<reply> If you're getting "Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale" when connecting to a Debian host over ssh: (a) use 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' to add additional locales to the remote machine, or (b) change SendEnv in ~/.ssh/config to not send LC_CTYPE (man ssh_config), or (c) change AcceptEnv on remote sshd, or (d) overwrite that value in your login scripts (.profile or similar). See also <mac locales>.

<reply>Starting with <stretch>, network interface names have changed from the previous convention of eth0, eth1/wlan0, wlan1 to names based on the device vendor or driver. This has some upsides and some downsides. For more information and options, see or ask me about <dpni>.

A really simple way to disable Predictable Network Interface naming and revert back to the old interface naming, is to "ln -s /dev/null /etc/systemd/network/" as root (without the quotes). Creating this symbolic link prevents systemd from being able to change the interface names. You will need to unplug/replug your device or reboot/reload module and you'll have an old iface name.
