vbox-OSE: pxegrub won't start after successful transfer via tftp

Reported by: w Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0 Keywords: pxegrub SuSE OSE
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

pxegrub won't start after successful transfer via tftp
from host in OSE (SuSE rpm) build,
while works fine with binary non-OSE (Sun xVM) VirtualBox
from suse-10.3 rpm package.

May be related: it seems OSE has single NIC driver linked in,
while configurator offers 3 various,
but ignores any selects, regards to last pxegrub message
before it hungs (see vbox-netconfig.png and vbox-pxeboot.png attached).

May be related: both PCnet LANCE NIC-s are pxe-booting in non-OSE vbox,
but, Intel 1Gbit card:

  • won't boot via pxe [grub], reporting attempt of use PCnet NIC;
  • won't show RX and TX packets counts, while ping and ssh to host work fine(!)

Don't forget to attach the VBox.log file of such a VM session in that case.
