I have one IP address (ipv4) and I am trying to install a domU (debian stable) on a dom0 which runs the latest xen 4.4.1 on debian testing.
I have created xenbr0 bridge and it is mapped to my eth0.
My domU can be started using
xl create my.cfg and the installer (using the debian installer with initrd.gz and vmlinuz) starts. Then auto network config tries to obtain an ip via dhcp in my domU but the networking fails cause I do not have a dhcp server.
How can I manually set my domU to connect to the outside (wild internet) via the xenbr0 so that I can do a network install?
Thanks for any pointers.
Nothing special there really
