Re: [Xen-devel] nfsroot and brige

        it seems like a catch-22 to me. I boot xen0 with nfsroot,
        and then try to setup bridge stuff. something like this

/sbin/brctl addbr xen-br0
/sbin/brctl addif xen-br0 eth0
/sbin/ifconfig xen-br0 netmask up
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 promisc up

        however, once I start it running it crashes down with error
        that nfs server is not available.

        does it mean that I must use initramfs to configure bridge
        first, or is there some other way?

it seems that it is actually possible to configure bridge over nfsroot,
but one needs to re-arrange lines slightl. As it is below it works for me

/sbin/brctl addbr xen-br0
/sbin/ifconfig xen-br0 $HOSTNAME netmask up
/sbin/brctl addif xen-br0 eth0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 promisc up
