Re: [Xen-users] Problem with Appletalk - Xen related ?

I'm not experienced with atalkd, but did your kernel provides the same IP and atalk features as in your Dom0 (i.e. IP multicast etc.)?

Did you use a bridged xen setup and is your bridge connected to the same physical network as your Dom0. If not, could you try that?

Network is a standard linux bridge setup via Dom0 networking tools, one bridge, one NIC, one network. Both kernels are stock Debian Squeeze, same package :
linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64, 2.6.32-41

I've now dug out a spare machine, transferred the guest system to it, and made only the minimum changes (fstab etc) to make it boot as a physical standalone machine. It starts atalkd, and nbmlkup returns the results I'd expect on my network.

So I think I can be sure it's not a software/config problem - the same image/setup works on a real machine but not as a PV guest under Xen.

Test machine is an AMD64 box, nVidia chipset, and forcedeth driver for the network. In the guest, "dmesg | grep eth0" doesn't show anything - is that to be expected ?
