Hi, ALL,
I just installed VirtualBox on my Gentoo with KDE 4 and trying to create a VM with OpenSolaris.
I successfully went through the wizard of creating the VM HD and now trying to select the network connection.

When I hit the "Settings" button and selected the "Network", I select "Bridged Adapter". Name selection becomes "wlan0".
Clicking on "Advanced" I see "Adapter Type" as:

Intel PRO/100 MT Desktop (82540EM) as selected.
Intel PRO/1000 T-Server (82543 GC)
Intel PRO/1000 MT Server (82545EM)
Paravirtualized Network (virtio-net)
PCnet-PCI II (AM79C970A)
PCnet-FAST III (AM79C973)

However, I don't have any of the above adapters:

And the "OK" button is disabled.

What is the proper setting for the network?

Should I install the advanced networking packages?

Thank you.

"Adapter Type" is how it looks *inside* the VM - you need to pick something OpenSolaris has a driver for there.

Not sure what you mean.
Are you saying I need to install OS and set it up with the internal driver?

Thank you.

No he say that you have to choose an adapter model that OpenSolaris will be able to drive inside the virtual machine because this is this model that OpenSolaris will see for this network interface. It mean that your model choice in this box must not be to exotic if you want it to be drive by the guest. You do not need to have this physical model inside the host.

I create inside host a dedicated virtual tuntap interface tap0 that I put in a bridge br0 to who I give a local IP address. Than I use tap0 as the bridged network interface for the virtual machine network configuration. By default, VirtualBox act as a Dhcp server for all created machine who can receive an Ip configuration doing a Dhcp request.

When you choose Bridged Adapter instead of Nat as Network Access Method for a VirtualBox network interface, you have to configure this interface by yourself with OpenSolaris here, because the Dhcp server of VirtualBox become disabled. You need to set the Ip address and the default gateway for this interface and the Dns Ip adresses in /etc/resolv.conf (or whatever OpenSolaris use) inside the guest.

A normal Dhcp request done by default by a lot of operating systems will fail for a bridged interface. The guest and the host interfaces must be configure on the same local IP network. This is the method I use.
