Right now all I see in in

which maps an Ethernet address to eth0

YMMV - it probably does :-)

Don't hold your breath, in 13.1 we're headed toward
socalled "PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames", such as enp13s0, enp14s0,
enp3s1f0, enp3s1f1, enp6s2 ...

It will be a bit more complicated than that ... those predictable
interface names are defined for PCI attached devices only. There is
nothing for other classes of devices. So at one side we do not have old
method to shuffle the names around anymore, on the other hand we also do
not have any persistent names generated automatically.

You still can rename them, of course, just make sure it will not clash
with kernel auto-generated names.

Speaking professionally, we have some 50+ openSUSE systems spanning 10.2
to 12.2. They are all SNMP monitored, locally and externally. The
change of network device naming introduced by systemd (yes, this IS a
systemd issue), will mean our systems will be unable/unlikely to move
beyond 12.3. I am hoping the openSUSE comm^H^H^H^H do-ocracy will see
sense and at least retain the ability to rename devices automagically
as we are used to. Maybe we can take over some stuff from upstream
