Yes in the 2.3 release there is a step in the Linux.pm pre_capture routine to delete this file on each capture.
But the newer Linux versions will actually recreate this file on startup, just deleting will work for the first image capture but not any after that. Older distros, deleting it was a long-term fix. So for an immediate workaround in the 2.2.1 code, I've seen success in deleting this file and then creating a directory of this name in your image and recapture. rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules mkdir /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules Hope this helps.
