Hello archlinux team,

I tried to install a system where more than one ethernet card is installed. To make them appear at fixed names, I created udev rules as described on the Wiki. So my two network cards are now named "net0" and "net1".

The first card is just connected to an internet router, so I want to configure this one via dhcp. My command:

systemctl enable dhcpcd@net0

And the result: The symlink, created by "systemctl enable", points to "eth0" and not "net0". So after reboot, I didn't have a configured ethernet card. I had to rename the symlink manually to get what I expected to get. With the renamed symlink, anything works as it should...

Can someone please have a look at this?
This task depends upon
