To get Qemu Acceleration you must run qemu-system-x86_64 (with the -kernel-kqemu option), not the default launcher (qemu). --Nak 0:48, 11 May 2007 (GMT+1)

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

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.
