Looks like biosdevname might need some work - I tried it on a system with one embedded NIC and a 4-port PCI NIC - the suggestion for eth0 (the embedded NIC) was 'pci6p1'.

Hi,
Would you please provide the output from following commands from your system -

sudo /sbin/biosdevname -d
sudo /usr/sbin/dmidecode
sudo /usr/sbin/biosdecode
lspci -tv

Per,
Thank you for testing and providing feedback on biosdevname.

I am not able to download the files from the posted links. Would you post it on opensuse ftp, if it is possible or post the logs inline.

I don't have access to any opensuse ftp site (that I am aware of), but I've opened Bug #676025 for covering this. Better than posting everything here.
