I am running a debian system and trying to get rootstrap to work to set me up
a basic root_fs.
The host machine already has an networking bridge set up between two ethernet
cards, so I have created a tap device (tap0) and connected it to the bridge.
A brctl show - shows the bridge with the ethernet cards and tap all connected
together. This bridge has an ethernet address of 10.0.10.100 within my home
network - where the gateway to the outside world (a netgear router) has an ip
address of 10.0.10.250
Using the debian uml-utilities package I have uml_switch running as a daemon,
acting as a hub (-hub) and connected to the tap device (-tap tap0)
I fireup rootstrap which starts a uml instance with the following network
And then rootstrap should be doing the folllowing within the uml
ifconfig eth0 10.0.10.150 netmask 255.255.250.0
route add default gw 10.0.10.250 (I have also tried this with 10.0.10.100 as
the gw address)
rootstrap eventually fails because its networking attempt to retrieve some
data from a debian mirror times out.
Whilst the timed out networking is happening I ping 10.0.10.150 from the host
and get no response, and a brctl showmacs does not show any detection of the
ethernet address of the uml instance.
So all the evidence is that I do not have a network. However I have no idea
what I am doing wrong and not sure where to go from here.

Solved - I had to switch to routed subnets - but once I did and figured out
how to route to it properly it all works.
