Ok here is how I got it up and running w/ Networking. I can now run apt-get
update and get eveyrthing correctly. I also have networking w/ a windows XP
image as well.
Install the bridge-utils package, apt-get install bridge-utils or use it
If you have installed qemu through apt-get install qemu, or your favorite
package manager, the default qemu-if script is located at /etc/qemu-if.
Edit that file:
sudo nano /etc/qemu-if
echo "Executing /etc/qemu-ifup"
echo "Bringing up $1 for bridged mode..."
sudo /sbin/ifconfig $1 0.0.0.0 promisc up
echo "$Adding $1 to br0.."
sudo /usr/sbin/brctl addif br0 $1
Is then what this looks like.
Edit your /etc/network/interfaces file as well
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces and add in br0 as an interface. I have
setup mine so br0 starts automatically and grabs an address from DHCP
# This is a list of hotpluggable network interfaces.
# They will be activated automatically by the hotplug subsystem.
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp
# Bridge 0
iface br0 inet dhcp
Now when I start qemu (sudo qemu -hda dapper.img) I have a dapper drake image
running with internet connection. When you start qemu you should see
connected to br0.
THat should be it, good luck to all
