To start, I'll say it's been nearly 2 decades since I've fiddled with *nix, and that was OBSD.. so to say I'm rusty is an understatement... And I'm new to Rpi.
So I've edited the
/etc/network/interfaces file, and added my desired static IP and netmask, I exit, I pull the interface down and back up, and it is set and working.. I reboot, and I have some weird IP again, the file is as I left it...
I must be missing something somewhere, what is it?
GNU nano 2.2.6 File: /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth- inet manual allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf allow-hotplug wlan1 iface wlan1 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
interface eth0 static ip_address= 192.168.1.250/16 hostname clientid persistent option rapid_commit option domain_name_servers, domain_name, domain_search, host_name option classless_static_routes option ntp_servers require dhcp_server_identifier slaac private nohook lookup-hostname
OK, I removed all the comments that seemed to be offensive to formatting
