Problem configuring eth0 as static

I'm struggling to configure the network interface as static. I've tried two ways:


  • $ ifconfig eth0  ---> it works well, but sooner than later the configuration automatically disappears. I guess it has to do with some dhcp client. If that's the case, ¿how can I disable it?
  • Editing /etc/network/interfaces file:

# Config eth0 as static
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

Somehow this config works okay but the problem is the PicoZed takes like 3-4 minutes to boot up. It gets stucked somewhere around these lines before proceeding:
