networking not functioning because of open dialog box about missing volumes.........
Description (last modified by )
The networking is not functioning because of an open dialog box about missing volumes (that happened to be on a usb stick....)
this occurred on a linux host 2.6.27 kernel, opensuse x86_64
after closing the dialog box, networking was activated.
In my case, there is a few seconds between the gui being available and working and the dialog box, in which time you can start a guest. The few seconds are caused by a auto-power off USB hard-disk that needs to spin up.....
I think the solution would be to disallow interaction until the startup check has finished.....
