    Unhappy Nvidia NIC problem after migrating 10.3->11.0

    Hi,

    Almost half year ago i`ve installed openSUSE 10.3, everything whas working just out-of-box. Today i`ve upgraded to openSUSE 11.0, and system see new NIC everytime i reboot - always same MCP61 Ethernet using focedeth, but with different numbers eth0 was first, then eth1, eth2 ... always undefined IP, and always newest one have MAC defined, previous ones have no HW info, how to get rid of it. My wife won`t configure ethernet everytime she starts computer.

    Motherboard is ASUS based on NVIDIA nForce 430 chipset

    I had the same problem with my laptop HP pavillion dv6315ea in OpenSUSE and BaltixLinux (Ubuntu 8.04 version).
    Solution:
    1. open /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    2. delete all from eth1 to ethN (if they are doubling);
    3. erase option ATTR{address}=="1a:2b:3c:4d:5e:6f", ATTR{type}=="1",
    to do not create new ethN if ATTR{address} is changed.
