My notes on setting up VDE (virtual distributed ethernet) for use with QEMU on Ubuntu.
apt-get install vde apt-get install qemu
No kqemu for the moment.
I'm following the instructions at Nexedi, with some minor modifications:
1. vde_switch 2. slirpvde -d -n 192.168.254.0 & 3. QEMU_TMPDIR=~/tmp vdeq /usr/local/bin/qemu \ -cdrom current.iso -m 256 -macaddr 52:54:00:12:34:43
Seems to work, but I have no idea what to do with it yet!
