I think the easiest, practical solution is to revert to classical behavior. In the USB stick's bootloader config (so, in the grub2 config, for example), add the paramater net.ifnames=0 to the kernel command line. Continue using eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces. Given the situation you've described and the emphasis you placed on keeping things simple, this ...

This is occurring because the output for v3.3.6 was going to stderr, not stdout. Apparently, prior to v3.4.0 the output from python --version is sent to stderr, whereas in v3.4.0 and later this output is sent to stdout. Redirection of both stdout and stderr to the output file works just fine: python --version >> $fname 2>&1

Read https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/NetworkTarget/ for an exhaustive treatment of the matter. You main problem is this: What precisely is required for $network is not obvious and can be different things depending on local configuration. Systemd gives you better tools as detailed on the above link. Basically, you'll want to put [Unit]...

Find another company. If they claim to rent you four cores, you should get four cores. A complaint that the load is 3.5 (which means you're using approximately three and a half cores, not four) and that it therefore is abusing their system, is ridiculous. There are many cloud providers who will happily allow you to run whatever you want...

Sshd doesn't care where the connection is coming from, if it's configured to do a reverse DNS lookup, it does.

If you're modernist, you can switch to using systemd-networkd instead of the usual static configuration method. See man systemd.network; the basic idea is removing /etc/network/interfaces and creating instead /etc/systemd/network/static.network like [Network] Address=1.2.3.4/26 Gateway=1.2.3.3 Don't forget to systemctl enable systemd-networkd as well.

If apt is borked, sometimes it's possible to set things right manually with dpkg and the full path of the local cached package. Here's how: cd to where apt stores the packages, namely /var/cache/apt/archives/ dpkg then (as needed) the switch for install, remove, purge or whatnot, then the filename of the package in the current directory. So to install ...

I was finally able to install debian on the laptop - I manually created bootable USB stick with syslinux (which has textmode by default) and since that process was far more complicated than I originaly thought, I'm posting it here: I was using instructions from: https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/amd64/ch04s03.html.en - this is unfortunately very ...

Below auto lo add auto eth0. Then, below that, add alow-hotplug eth0 Your final /etc/network/interfaces should read: auto lo auto eth0 allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth0 inet6 auto Reboot for good measure. see: man interfaces for more info :)

First of all, your syntax is wrong, and will result in a command line like... dh_gencontrol -- -Vdist:Depends=""php7.0, php7.0-opcache, ..."" rather than (what you would want): dh_gencontrol -- -Vdist:depends="php7.0, php7.0-opcache, ..." this is because make doesn't do quoting, and you quote the data in the variable twice (once in the assignment, once ...
