Is this the right list for this question, or should I be elsewhere?
I am trying to specify a network card “model type” of “pcnet” (to emulate vmware esxi’s network card). No matter what I put for model type in my xml config file, it comes up as an Intel e1000. I ran “qemu-kvm –net nic,model=? /dev/null” and I got back a list of supported models including pcnet,e1000,virtio, and others as expected. No matter which I put in my xml file for /etc/libvirt/qemu/Symantec-bg.xml (a Symantec Brightmail Gateway virtual machine), I just get back that its an Intel card on boot (which doesn’t work with Symantec BG).
I am running Fedora 12, kernel is 126.96.36.199-166.fc12.x86_64. The version of libvirt is 0.7.1. I am running it on an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8400 @ 2.66 GHz. I have the same problem under Fedora 13 Beta.
