Qemu on the internet

On the site (
) stands an excellent manual for getting internet on the emulator qemu. But I
can't go past the command:
route add default gw

The emulated neo gives the following error:
route: SIOCADDRT: No such process

I've checked with the ifconfig and I've noticed that the loopback is the only
network 'connection'. (usb0 is down because we used the command ifdown usb0).
Normally I would expect another network device, so the route command shouldn't
give errors.

How can I still get internet on the neo (without having to setup the emulated
usb connection, because I and many others don't like messing in my kernel)

I believe this chapter (Setting up Internet Connection..) assumes that you've
already set up a normal network connection between the Neo1973 and the PC, and
it only covers setting up a NAT routing to the internet over that (pre-existing)
connection. (I haven't tried these instructions)

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Thanks, you're right. After making the serial connection and trying it again, it
was solved.

I have changed the wiki, so nobody forgets it.
