Thread: network interface numbering?

  1. #1

    Default network interface numbering?

    how do the network interfaces get numbered in opensuse 11.0 ?

    I'm using the GM download (4.7gig) version of opensuse, and just setup a new machine.

    For some reason it's numbering the interfaces eth4 to eth7 instead of eth0 to eth3

    where does it get this info, or how do I change it?

    in 10.2 and previous, there using to be a rules file in /etc/udev/...etc but now it's not there.

    it might be this file: udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules but it doesnt seem to be constant.
    on a newly installed system this file doesn't exist, so where does it do the numbering??

    I need a method of fixing (not using ID#'s) when setting up interfaces, so I can move an image of suse from hardware to hardware without worrying about this silly nonsense!

    The rules are in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. These rules are
    based on the MAC address of the network hardware.
