It's me again. Now that I have managed to install a domU with
debootstrap and linux-image-2.6.18-6-xen-amd64 kernel, I have lost
access to the network.

Here is my configuration file:
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:00:00:05, ip=' ]

And my /etc/network/interfaces:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

At boot time, I have the following error messages:
Setting up networking....
Configuring network interfaces...SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
Failed to bring up eth0.

And obviously, when I try to ping, I get:
connect: Network is unreachable

When I issue ifconfig, I only see the loopback interface.

The setup I have shown above woks with custom 2.6.25 kernels. Anyone
sees what I am missing?
