    A great job that UML, and a great thank
    to Jeff Dike.

    Did someone try
    to setup networking connectivity
    with the host OS using SLIRP,
    so that there is no need for
    root privileges ?
    (Actually, it seems that UML virtual
    serial line doesn't support slip discipline)

      You might want to take this to one of the uml mailing lists.  People hang out there rather than paying attention to this forum.

      Not as far as I know.  But any access to the host networking is going to require root privs because you need to set up some kind of network interface in the host kernel.

      It's a very bare-bones serial line.  That wouldn't be too hard to fix if you're interested in banging on the code.
