Default e1000 default?

Hey guys,

I've just switched from Xen and discovered the wonders of KVM and
especially libvirt. I just tried to move a few customers over to the
libvirt setup (KVM works fine) and to my horror libvirt (or at least the
version in Hardy) doesn't have the facility to specify a network card
model in a configuration file.

Up until recently I know KVM only supported this realtek default, I also
note that redhat changed their copy of KVM's default network card to
e1000 recently. Since e1000 is probably more widely supported - is there
any chance we can do the same? I'd really enjoy it, as i'm currently
stuck running customers with no adequate management interface - moving
them under libvirt will remedy this, but i need to be able to specify
the e1000 drivers first!

Thanks in advance,

Henri �

This would indeed be a nice feature. Can you file a bug against the
libvirt package in launchpad? This would ensure the problem is more
widely known.

Er... Sure it does.

<interface type='network'>
<mac address='52:54:00:2b:b5:2f'/>
<source network='default'/>
<model type='e1000'/>
</interface>

That's it.

What makes you say that?

Er... I have no idea why that e-mail bubbled to the top of my inbox
again... I didn't notice the date on it until after I sent my
response. Sorry.
