emulated netcards don't work with recent sunos kernel
i'm using qemu-kvm backend in version: # qemu-kvm -version
QEMU PC emulator version 0.12.5 (qemu-kvm-0.12.5), Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard
and there are just *not working any of model=$type with combinations of recent sunos (solaris, openindiana, opensolaris, ..) ..
you can download for testing purposes iso from here: http://
behaviour is as follows:
e1000 - receiving doesn't work, transmitting works .. dladm (tool for handle ethers) shows that is all ok, correct mode is loaded up, it just seems like this driver works at 100% but ..
rtl8169|pcnet - works in 10Mbit mode with several other issues like high cpu utilization and so .. dladm is unable to recognize options for this kind of -nic
others - just don't work
.. i experienced this issue several times in past .. woraround was, that rtl8169 worked so-so .. with recent sunos kernel it doesn't.
it's easy to reproduce, this is why i'm not putting here more then launching script for my virtual machine:
# cat openindiana.sh
qemu-kvm -hda /home/kvm/
-vga std -vnc :9 -k en-us -monitor unix:/home/
ip l set oi0 up;
ip a a 192.168.99.9/24 dev oi0;
