Bug Description

<zyga> rsalveti, snowball hwpack _or_ snowball support in lmc is broken
<rsalveti> zyga: not sure, lag would know better
<zyga> rsalveti, snowball nano images don't start up eth0, there are no entries in /etc/network/interfaces
<rsalveti> that's fine, probably something that needs to be fixed at the hwpack side
<zyga> one of you will want to fix this
<zyga> right
 if anyone reports this (I'm not sure where the fault lies)
<rsalveti> let me check the hwpack
<rsalveti> zyga:
<rsalveti> it's still using hwpack v1 :-(
 if it was v2 you'd just need to add "wired_interfaces=eth0"
<zyga> rsalveti, I don't know what that means sadly
 rsalveti, I see
<rsalveti> different config format
<zyga> rsalveti, well I'm glad LAVA helps you uncover bugs :)
 lag, ^^ now I'm sure you want to fix this :)
<rsalveti> ok, can you open a bug against the igloocommunity project?
<zyga> yup
<rsalveti> zyga: thanks

A simple solution for this problem would be to port the hwpack definition file from v1 to v2.

Lee will revert the changes since the side effect is preventing the system from booting. Must update the release notes accordingly (no auto eth0 upon boot)

+Lee Jones could you please add a comment that the bug wont be fixed.

Is there another bug that will implement the auto config feature for eth?

lt-snowball has the eth0 enabled by default, while lt-snowball-x11-base depends on network-manager for network support.
