Default Do any of the races conflict?

Do any of the races other than the Imperium conflict with each other, or is the attitude of the universe 'screw the Imperium? Examples?

Orks and Tyranids will fight anyone they come in contact with, and Necrons will attack anyone who interferes in their plans. Dark Eldar will raid Tau and Orks settlements for slaves, and the Eldar will attack anyone if it furthers their own plans. Likewise, Chaos will fight any Xenos they encounter, unless they are trying to manipulate them

So everyone is pretty much at everyone else's throat. The only caveat to this is that the Eldar and Dark Eldar are both fairly difficult to engage if they don't want to fight, and the Tau are obviously restricted in their choice of opponents by the smaller extent of their Empire.

Yep, pretty much every race is at the throats of all the others.

For example, there's the mammoth slugfest between the Ork empire of Octavius and Hive Fleet Leviathan.
The Tau are in constant "contact" with the Orks, and have seen off at least one Tyranid splinter fleet.
Medusa V fluff showed the Dark Eldar capturing Ork slaves.
The Necrons hate all life.

And so on...

Don't forget that Tyranids and Orks fight themselves alot, same with Chaos.

So do Dark Eldar, and even Eldar from time to time (they made a battle report, it must be legit).

wow, sounds a lot like my school on a bigger scale, but you'd think that the eldar might try and make an alliance/treaty with the tau

Did you mean in between each other? Well, let's see what evidence do we have.

Tau: O'shava. This seems like a legitamate reason to get pissed off and attack. But is there any fluff? Anyone?

Orcs: The evidence is overwhelming.

Necron: They all live for one purpousse... So I think not. Unless the deceiver and the Nightbringer decided they didn't like each other. Is that possible?

Chaos: Obviously.

Eldar: I don't think so they seem to heavenly. Too.... Oh I don't know.

Dark Eldar. I think they would be like chaos. Fighting amongst eachother for their own means. Am I right?

Imperium: There must be a few rebellions here and there....

The Eldar do fight each other. There are a number of accounts of Craftworld vs Craftworld match-ups. There was even a battle report about this a few years back in WD.

The Dark Eldar are unified as far as I know by Asdrubael Vect. Many have tried to usurp his position but have had their asses handed to them each time. The most recent attempt by No'Akei - well, we're still waiting on the end result of that one.

My point exactly, does this count as same-race fighting?

I would guess that lesser Dark Eldar houses fight each other all the time. Necrons may also fight each other when the plans of the Lords and C'Tan cross purposes, but there isn't enough information on the subject. There is no fluff about Tau fighting each other, even Farsight. So it is hard to say what would make them come to blows amongst themselves.
