• Debian Hurd network configuration help + docs

    From John Scott@21:1/5 to All on Thu Dec 17 09:30:05 2020
    Hello,

    My Debian Hurd VM in virt-manager was working well when I tried it last, but
    it seems to be having network issues now. I tried the directions over at [1], but that hasn't netted me much:
    # settrans -fga /dev/netdde /hurd/netdde
    settrans: /hurd/netdde: No such file or directory

    # settrans -fga /dev/netdde
    settrans: /dev/netdde: No such file or directory

    ping just gives me unknown host and the system seems oblivious to any connection. I've tried e1000 and rtl8139 virtual adapters (the former was what worked fine), had updated the VM to unstable recently, and am looking for suggestions.

    I also sent my first Hurd fix to p11-kit recently [2] (may not fix it completely)
    and look forward to continue helping kernel diversity.

    Do you have the netdde package installed?

    # settrans -fga /dev/netdde
    settrans: /dev/netdde: No such file or directory

    That one you can fix by running

    dpkg-reconfigure hurd

    There are no installation candidates; packages.debian.org seems to
    reflect this. Where can one get it?

    Did you read the "Installing More Packages" section of

    https://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/hurd-install.en.html

    that lists which sources you should be using?
