Once the procedure from the FAQ is applied, beside the fact it doesn't
work, those messages start to appear on the console. I'm actually only
running the installer/kernel outside sysinst but I guess playing with
the routes should work anyways.
fe:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff tried to overwrite permanent arp info for <dom0_ip>
XEN microkernel and tools are version 3.2, with a 2.6.26 linux dom0.
fe:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff is vif's mac address on the dom0 side. In fact, all
vifs have that same mac address, bridged or routed. I assume that's
normal. What maybe isn't, is the ability for the guest to see its dom0
sided mac address instead of its own.
I should try the FAQ-mentioned routing trick in a non xen configuration
to see if it's xen issue or not. Does someone usually have success
using that procedure?
