Nvidia NIC problem after migrating 10.3->11.0


Almost half year ago ive installed openSUSE 10.3, everything whas working just out-of-box. Today ive 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

Thanks in advance for reply

I had the same problem with my laptop HP pavillion dv6315ea in OpenSUSE and BaltixLinux (Ubuntu 8.04 version).

  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.
