I am seeing the following message in the dmesg for the Dell R320 servers after booting.
pci 0000:02:00.0: Address Space Collision: [mem 0xdd000000 - 0xdd03ffff pref] conflicts with 0000:02:00.1
I have seen the same message using both openSUSE 11.4 x86_64 and openSUSE 12.2 x86_64
Under 12.2 the interfaces are still usable, however if yast is opened to the Network Devices page in order to configure
the Ethernet parameters, the system freezes twice for about 10 seconds each, then finally opens the page and allows the
interfaces to be configured.
In Yast under 11.4 the intefaces are shown but cannot be configured or deleted.
The results in the the Ethernet Interfaces not being setup and not even mentioned in the usev 70-persistent-net.rules file
No ifcfg-eth0 or ifcfg-eth1 config file are created in the /etc/sysconfig/network folder.
Is the conflict perhaps caused by the driver which is shown by 12.2 to be: tg3 ???
Is there someway to get this corrected for both the 12.2 and 11.4 distro’s of openSUSE?
sorry, i can’t help you with the problem you posted about, but maybe i
can help you keep from getting script-kiddy kracked:
11.4 is past its end of life (cite: http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime) and no longer receiving
security patches through normal means (since November 2012!). It
therefore should not be
exposed to untrusted networks (like the internet) as it has numerous
known to the bad guys security problems.
However if it incorporates Evergreen, http://tinyurl.com/4aflkpy it is
good until July 2014!! and it is easy to switch it to Evergreen.

i have not looked, but i guess the Dell R320 server is certified for
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), and not for any version of
openSUSE…nor will it ever be…
so, the answer to your question above might best be: it probably is not
a problem with either SLES 10 or 11, and if the problem exists there
it is NO doubt it can be fixed by the SLES folks…talk with them, suse.com
the two products are not the same, not nearly…(if you are familiar
with Red Hat: openSUSE is like the Fedora to Red Hat, and not the
CentOS to Red Hat)
openSUSE®, the “German Engineered Automobile” of operating systems!
