I had the same issue. Yes it is that he never compiled the Driver in
the kernel. But what you can do to see if it is working is do a
modprobe e1000 and then do a ifconfig -a and then see if the card
comes up!

Hi everyone.

I am pretty new to xen, but am having an issue that I can't seem to crack.
I am running the 2-6-16 kernel on Debian Etch.  If I boot into the Etch
kernel, everything works as it should.  When I boot into the Xen kernel,
eth0 no longer exists.

From what I understand, the network-bridge script will down my eth0, create
a new virtual eth0 and bridge it into xenbr0

However, ifconfig only shows my lo and xenbr0 interfaces.  ifconfig -a lists
all the veth devices and the vif devices, but still no eth0

/etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge status returns 'Device "eth0" does not

lsmod shows that the e1000 driver is loaded.

Can anyone shed some light?
