How to change the Network Interface Naming Policy?

Hi all,
I have a motherboard with 2 network interfaces

Sparky names the interfaces "eth0" and "eth1" (names assignment to hardware address changes at every boot)
I need to use the "enp38s0" and "enp39s0" naming schema.

How can I do this?

I tried to modify the file
/usr/lib/systemd/network/99-default.link

with this content


[Match]
OriginalName=*

[Link]
#NamePolicy=keep kernel database onboard slot path
#AlternativeNamesPolicy=database onboard slot path
NamePolicy=path kernel database onboard slot
AlternativeNamesPolicy=path database onboard slot
MACAddressPolicy=persistent

but nothing changed

See:
➤ Want to know how you can use a program you have never used before? "man" will be your best new friend! Type "man <pkg-name>" in a shell.
➤ Or, point your browser to "manpages.debian.org/<pkg-name>" .... RTFM !!!
