    Hi guys,

    i need your help! I downloaded the vmware image "The perfect Server - Ubuntu 8.04" and put it in my vmware-server (on windows).

    Even though the network is set to "bridge", the Ubuntu is not able to connect to the net. It says, there is "no eth0".

    I know, that the settings in the vmware-server are ok, because i did not encounter this problem with the opensuse image.

    My /etc/network/interfaces looks like this:

    These settings should work. An "ifconfig" shows me only the "lo"-device

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I had to delete /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and then reboot to get my vm to see eth0.

    That rules file has something in it (I assume the MAC address) in it that is different for every machine.
