Default asus m2n/nforce 430/mcp61 + suse 10.2 = no network

I have installed suse 10.2 but I don't have net connection. I'd searched the web and I've found drivers from nvidia. I installed this from rpm with no effect, then I uninstalled it and installed this drivers.
this is my logfile after installation
Code:

The network driver should be shipped with your linux distribution and is called 'forcedeth'. It is part of the Linux kernel. In the past the drivers weren't part of the Linux kernel and at that moment nvidia offered their own drivers (they were closed source). You can find a little more info here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.21.html

yes, I know. as I wrote in my first post, I've installed them. and they don't work... on this page is nothing about my problem.
maybe I should try some other distributions... but I wanted suse...

and I have to say, that when I turn suse on, he's detecting wire network connection and he's connecting it, but it doesn't work. and in each turning on it's different eth (the last time it was eth12).

dunno what to do...

hi.
i'm using the same mainboard and chipset.
basically there are two problems you have.

1. the NİC of the MCP61 is not seen in YAST so you are not able to configure it. right?
what you just should do ist to install the KNetworkManager and just let him work for you. you don't really need to set up your NİC in YAST at all. as soon as there is a network connection KNetworkManager initialises the MCP61 NİC and connects. that's how it works on my system.

2. every reboot gives your NİC a new name eth0, eth1,...etc. right?
i don't know the cause but the solution ist very simple:

in the file "/etc/sysconfig/network/config" just turn the value "FORCE_PERSISTENT_NAMES" to "no".
after reboot your NİC will be always eth0..


good luck and greets,
sahafiec
