It feels as if it is time again to start blogging, there are some things to write about which do not fit into the traditional scientific publication format. I guess blog posts are an appropriate complementary medium. I moved my blog from electricbum.wordpress.com (including all old posts) over to this one and will only post here in the future.
Stay tuned for some upcoming blog posts on Linked Data in the fields of Educational Metadata and Sustainability (mainly environmental).
I just struggled a bit with getting xVM’s host interface networking up and running on Ubuntu. It works now and maybe somebody else finds the following short how to useful.
Run “sudo aptitude install bridge-utils”.
Add the following lines to /etc/network/interfaces:
iface tap0 inet manual
tunctl_user user # replace "user" with the user name running xVM
iface br0 inet static
Run “service networking restart”. (or “/etc/init.d/networking restart” if your Ubuntu doesn’t have the service command yet)
Run “sudo VBoxAddIF vbox0 user br0”. (like above, change “user” to your xVM user)
In your VM settings choose “Attached to: Host Interface”, as “Interface Name” in the field below enter “vbox0”. If you want to have Internet access in your VM you should also configure a second network interface, pick “Attached to: NAT” there.
Start up your VM, and add the following lines to /etc/network/interfaces:
iface eth0 inet static
iface eth1 inet dhcp
Run “service networking restart”.
That’s it, your VM should now be accessible (from your host) via 10.10.1.2. Of course you can adjust the IP addresses/networks as you like.
