User-mode Linux Networking Issue


Hi,

I've managed to install user-mode linux on ubuntu 8.10 and everything works fine.

I issue the following command to start a machine:

./linux ubda=ubuntu-ext3-2gb-root.fs mem=256M eth0=ethertap,tap0,fe:fd:0:0:0:1,192.168.0.254

I now try to bring up the eth0 interface on the VM with this command:

ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.250 up

and when I hit enter i get this error on the host console and the VM locks up.

etap_tramp : read of status failed, err = 0
read_output - read of length failed, read only 0 of 4 bytes

Has anyone any idea where I've went wrong?

Cheers,

Billy

Unless you love spam, you need to change your LQ user name. E-mail Jeremy -- I think he's jeremy@LQ (expand "LQ" ...)
