Hey,

I'm trying to get networking to work on this vm of mine running on ubuntu 10.04 linux-2.6.32 on Gnome-Boxes.
And I'm kind of confused how I'm suppose to achieve this?

I see a eth2 interface and I get an address back from it when I run
Code:
dhclient eth2

But other than that, pinging anything does not work.
It seems the ping detects the site, but the vm cannot receive anything:
Code:
~ $ ping www.google.com
PING www.google.com (172.217.10.99) 56(64) bytes of data.


I saw this wiki: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/QEMU/Options#Networking
but am not really sure where I'm suppose to pass these arguments into gnome-boxes..?

What configurations am I missing?

i think Qemu does not support ICMP, you have to find another way to test your connection.

ICMP works fine in Qemu VMs, if you use the right type of virtual NIC.

OP: why are you using such ancient guests? How did you configure the VM?

Thanks everyone!

I was trying to get it running because my operating systems course at my University made us program on linux-2.6.

The starter code won't compile on new systems because there are so many deprecated code in the starter code.
I really hoped we could've developed on a newer system. Really disappointed ):

And even though, I used gentoo for a while, kernel programming is still new to me haha xD

I like the virtio NIC, since a guest with the proper virtio drivers is more efficient with it than with software emulation of hardware that actually exists.
Code:
-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=lan,mac=52:54:00:00:00:02 -netdev tap,id=lan,script=no,downscript=no,ifname=tap01
