I followed the beginner's guide to installing Arch and setting up rc.conf. I have also installed 'dnsmasq'. When following the QEMU/KVM how-to I was unable to get my bridge interface to see the dhcp server of my modem until I amended my rc.conf to include and bring up the loopback interface i.e.

<pre>lo="lo up"

eth0="eth0 up"

br0="dhcp"

INTERFACES=(lo eth0 br0)
 +
gateway="default gw 192.168.0.1"

ROUTES=(gateway)

As this is not part of the beginners rc.conf it might help others that have got stuck with this part to read this and maybe considered, if correct, a useful addition to the how-to.  It would be good to get confirmation from those-that-know if this is the best foot forward, so to speak.

thoughts / suggestions on networking nitty gritty section

I followed the beginner's guide to installing Arch and setting up rc.conf. I have also installed 'dnsmasq'. When following the QEMU/KVM how-to I was unable to get my bridge interface to see the dhcp server of my modem until I amended my rc.conf to include and bring up the loopback interface i.e.

lo="lo up"
eth0="eth0 up"
br0="dhcp"
INTERFACES=(lo eth0 br0)
gateway="default gw 192.168.0.1"
ROUTES=(gateway)

As this is not part of the beginners rc.conf it might help others that have got stuck with this part to read this and maybe considered, if correct, a useful addition to the how-to. It would be good to get confirmation from those-that-know if this is the best foot forward, so to speak.
