the same with me.
possibly driver issue ? Fedora 20 live works fine with vmplayer and says :
02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE] (rev 10)
Subsystem: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] PCnet - Fast 79C971
Kernel driver in use: pcnet32
it should be here:
but it is not in case of centos 7 live.
|Have you tried a different network card typ? Also - without refering to Fedora - RHEL7 is not listed as supproted guest on Workstation9.|
thanks for quick reply.
* I have no idea, how to change network card type in VMware vmplayer. My physical net interface is gigabit Intel 82577LM. Any help is welcome
* "support" on vmwareXXX means "automatic login and serial code input etc" - many linuxes are not supported - and yet they work well
I kindly ask for including pcnet32 kernel module in the build. Although (not only) I can test rhel7 with qemu, it seems to be 3 times slower than with free linux vmplayer.
Probably bad news:
That one is not supported, at least not in EL7 beta, so probably also not in GA. Also 'confirmed' by RedHat:
Yes, the pcnet32 driver has been removed. Use the emulated Intel e1000 device, or preferably the paravirtualized VMWare vmxnet3 device.
Taken from here https://access.redhat.com/site/discussions/644133
As per that discussion link above this will at least get it working.
In order for me to get this working I had to add the following line to the vmdk file for the VM.
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"
Afterward you remove the VM and re-add it. Following the directions provided by Remmele and then this last step got it all sorted out for me.
Actually this is the discussion where it's mentioned. At the bottom.
|@spital: That is also the guide on how to change the virtual NIC :)|
I'm inclined to close this one, as it 'works as designed'. Any objections?
|Closing, it as it was confirmed to be the default behaviour for upstream iso/kernel.|
