So, the null thing must have been the trick.

Sure Andy, I'll give it a go tonight.

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

The DHCP thing is no big deal. I'm just glad it's working. Can't wait for the first of the TCP stuff you've coded, so that I can experiment that ...

Re: Visopsys 0.82 released

Yeah - I use QEMU, since I'm kind of a free software nut. I have pictures of RMS all over my house. Kidding!

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

The installer works just fine when there's no panic. Click, click and done. But, a person can get caught in a loop if a panic occurs and the disk is partially set up. I went round-and-round for a while myself. Otherwise, with no panic, this thread is entirely unnecessary, and most people could navig...

Re: Visopsys 0.82 released

I should mention that my Odroid-XU4/Gentoo QEMU emulator setup is version 2.11.0. Anyway, the first time I tried the network with QEMU + Visopsys, I used the realtek 8139 driver, which Visopsys didn't recognize. I remembered, from looking at the source code, that you had a Lance driver in there. So ...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Andy: Now I remember why the "hd0a" partition is there. The first time I use the installer, it shows no disks or partitions. Then I click the partitioner. At that point there is only an "Empty Space" line visible in the partitioner, so I click on it and go thru the steps I've outlined, above, to cre...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Networking ... This is starting to be very interesing. Andy's recent work on the system is a quantum leap for networking. I'd not really been very successful with the network stack before version 0.82. But, things are really starting to look a lot better. I noticed that previous versions of Visopsy...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

DHCP action: In Visopsys, the "ifconfig" command (if not launched with the -T (text only) switch) - will execute a dialog that can grab an IP address via the built-in DHCP client. I've noticed that (at least when running my instances) - the DHCP client does not pass the hostname back to the router ...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Note that I've used bridging for the QEMU/Visop setup. This may not be very secure, so don't do it on a live (internet connected) instance. For the curious, this is how to quickly bridge it all together on a Linux machine: 1) I add a bridge : brctl addbr br0 2) I may or may not want (optional): dnsm...
