Re: [Xen-users] network problem after boot Xen

I installed Xen 3.4.0 yesterday and managed to boot it up. When I boot my machine with xen kernel I can't find my eth0. I tried ifconfig  but it return only loopback interface.
Anyone experienced this before? Do I need to install something to get network card to work?

///////////// when boot with Xen kernel

Do a `ls /sys/class/net/`. Does it show anything besides lo in that directory? If not, then it is probably that the dom0 kernel you are booting does not have the driver for the particular network card that you have. If there is something besides lo, can you do an ifconfig on an interface named by what is listed there and get networking up?

Hopefully that gives you some direction.
