Ubuntu: /etc/network/interfaces is always overwritten by Preseed

+2 votes

I'm having trouble with my /etc/network/interfaces file that is overwritten by every Preseed install.

I have found out that when I let the late_command crash and I manually enter some identifier in:




the one in /etc/network/interfaces stays there, so no overwriting from the target version in that case. The fix to place the following in the late_command doesn't fix it either:

cp /target/etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces

Any idea on how to fix this?

I am wondering how - or more exactly where - umask is defined on a stock Ubuntu server system.

I have reactivated the root account. Here's the respective default umask for root and normal users:

Nomal User:

$ umask

Root User

$ umask

On RHEL/CentOS, these values are defined in /etc/bashrc and then in the individual ~/.bashrc files. How does Ubuntu handle this?
