I have just installed Slackware64 13.0 Linux as a HVM guest with Xen 3.5-unstable changeset 20143 pv-ops dom0 kernel For more details, please refer to the following link:


There are 83 screenshots so far at this moment.

I have encountered a problem with the virtual network interface eth0 in the Slackware virtual machine. According to Slackware, there's no such interface.

lspci -v output shows a Realtek virtual ethernet controller by Xensource.

The kernel model 8139too has been loaded. lsmod shows it.

I have checked /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and eth0 is configured for DHCP. Windows XP HVM virtual network interface works for DHCP.

Then I tried to restart the networking subsystem by issuing the following commands:

# /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 stop

# /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 start

"ifconfig -a" output only shows up loopback interface lo and not eth0.

Screenshots pertaining to the problem are here:



Please advise.

Thank you.
