I am currently running a Xen 3.5 unstable over a Debian Lenny with linux kernel 2.6.26-2

My problem right now is that whatever I try, I don't manage to get networking on my dom0. Here are a bunch of messages I picked from the output of the command dmesg:

  • eth0: MSI interrupt test failed
  • no ownder
  • ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0 link is not ready
From the eth0 link is not ready, i found some information browsing forums, advising to add pci=noacpi or pci=nommconf but I did not get much success there...

I also thought that it might be a problem of network card driver, so I tried to install the latest version. I found the driver on the Intel website, based on the output of these commands, indicated on Intel website:

#lspci -v | grep Ethernet -A 1

00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 2818

#ethtool -i eth0
driver: e1000e
version: 1.0.15-NAPI
firmware-version: 1.3-1
bus-info: 0000:00:19.0

The driver is from the Intel website, I downloaded it, unzipped it, make installed from src/ directory, rmmod-ed e1000e and modprobe e1000e

Same things happen again and again.

If I try to work on it when I am on my dom0, here are outputs from some commands

# ifdown eth0
DHCPRELEASE on eth0 to port 67
send_packet: Network is unreachable
send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast adress

# ifup eth0

Sending on   Socket/fallback
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to port 67 interval 5
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to port 67 interval 
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.

Any idea folks?
Thanks in advance...
