So, wizards of Linux, where does this selection of r8169 happen?
…is " udev rules written by the administrator go in
udev should detect your network interface controller (NIC) and automatically load the necessary kernel module at startup. Check the “Ethernet controller” entry (or similar) from the
lspci -v output. It should tell you which kernel module contains the driver for your network device.
edit: removal of r8168 package solved my issue
