yum update and now everything seems ok.

tried to do some yum search intel but the most "like my device" seem to be the package for Centrino 6000 (for wifi), and I already have it. I can't find anything for the gigabit ethernet controller in the Fedora repos

thanks for the feedback, mine are :

Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)

Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)

Ok, finally working like a charm

Answer to 1)

Using virt-manager GUI kept trace of my created VM and I'm able to start it again. Still interested in the way to do it via CLI tools though.

Answer to 2)

It was just a CentOS installation configuration misunderstanding, not related to libvirt (which had already done its job, see libvirt installation instructions about network, I don't remember where I got them but there are pretty straightforward for basic config).

I just missed the "Configure network" button on installation screens. ( Window size problem on my side ). CentOS doesn't auto-configurate its network devices anymore apparently. Or config manually after install, see for exemple : wiki.centos.org (slash) FAQ/CentOS6#head-b67e85d98f0e9f1b599358105c551632c6ff7c90

2014-01-09 04:32:38 -0500 asked a question How to setup a basic CentOS virtual machine with libvirt

Hello,

I would like to install a CentOS 6.5 virtual machine on my machine, only with command line tools and basic networking capabilities, i.e a way to have http and ssh connections between the host (Fedora 19) and the CentOS guest.

Being still quite noobish to the nix world, I experienced some trouble.

I first did an unsuccessful attempt to install virtualbox.

I then found this page on the fedoraporject.org wiki : /wiki/Getting_started_with_virtualization?rd=Virtualization_Quick_Start#Using_virtualization_on_Fedora

(can't post full links for the moment)

I followed the instructions, installed the packages needed (libvirt ...), and enabled virtualization in my BIOS. I installed my VM from the iso CentOS-6.5-x86_64-minimal.iso (with virt-install --prompt )

While the installation went all right, if I halt the VM I absolutely don't know how to restart it. The webpage I used apparently doesn't mention it, and having a look at virsh or virt-manager manual was not yielding help for me (but maybe because I don't know how to read it properly)

the virsh list doesn't show anything but an empty list. i tried to find the machine I created using find / -name name_of_vm_as_prompted_during_virt-install and found nothing

besides, while my guest is running, no network interface is there (except lo), despite the wiki stating that there should be a basic networking interface created by default that would allow me to have connection between guest and host. However on my host I have

virbr0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet 192.168.122.1  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.122.255
        ether 8e:3d:7c:b3:44:bf  txqueuelen 0  (Ethernet)

which, I guess, should be encouraging.

My knowledge on VM is quite limited and so is my understanding of networking.

My questions : 1) How to access my created but closed VM 2) How to set up the basic network capabilities 3) since I have 2 questions, should I split them into two separate threads ?

Thank you for your answer, but 19 isn't working for me on this point :(

I certainly don't want to modify and recompile the kernel, haven't time to learn how to do that these days. But I will give a look if I can get the drivers elsewhere. Thank you for your answer.

2014-01-08 14:02:42 -0500 commented answer No network on Fedora 19 with kernel 3.12.6

and, could you please point me to where I am supposed to file the bug ? Fedora website ? or another more related to the kernel ?

2014-01-08 13:59:06 -0500 commented answer No network on Fedora 19 with kernel 3.12.6

Thank you very much for answer. I would have forgotten about the limits and I would have been very annoyed if the problem isn't fixed soon :)

2014-01-06 07:24:40 -0500 asked a question No network on Fedora 19 with kernel 3.12.6

I recently updated the kernel to 3.12.6, but when I started my Fedora 19, all my network connections seemed to have disappeared (no more life signs of my ethernet card neither of my wifi card)

ifconfig shows nothing (except lo) and the same for the network icons on my desktop (cinnamon or gnome 3)

Booting on the previous kernel version 3.12.5 is my workaround for the moment, but if anyone have a clue or know how to report the bug, it will be most appreciated, as I am only a user :)

feel free to ask any required information needed !

For a start, I use some Lenovo T420 .

EDIT :

Last updates I did (since about a week) seem to have solved my problem. Kernel was not the issue apparently, because it was not altered.
