I’ve been using Debian for over a decade, I recall being about to restart the network cleanly via an init script. Nowadays I don’t even know, every time I start searching I end up just rebooting and that works and I feel shitty about my life and humanity in general.
(yes, I’ve even checked here: https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkConfiguration#Setting_up_an_Ethernet_Interface and not a word)
I’m tired of playing around and guessing, what is the correct way to get this done ?
P.S. Why has nobody created a package called ‘pony’ to do this already ?
