after a reboot everything looks just fine, except:
ifconfig shows only a xenbr0, no peth or veth.. The network works, creating
a guest with xen-tools works, however the bridging is weird:
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
xenbr0 8000.00188b82f742 no eth0
Good. I was tired of Xen's insistence in veth/peth for no good reason.
Bridge in Linux has always been done by setting a bridge and add the
real IP to it.
At most, Xen could rename the bridge to the real interface name, but I
never saw the point on adding another path (veth) to the network.
I installed debian minimal, maybe there are some packages that needs to be
there in order to get this to work which i might have missed?
Why do you want veth? I've always used my own network-bridge script, and
not using veth prevented some problems and brought none.
i've never seen the veth/peth devices as a problem, but for starters, if
they were there, it would help alot in manouvering through the new API
(which i kinda need)
