A small background. I've just subscribed to virtual dedicated server running Fedora 14. But before starting to setup it, I've decided that it is a good idea to try all installing/configuration on my own local VM. So I downloaded a Fedora 14 Netinstall CD and used latest VirtualBox to install it (leaving NAT for network configuration).
The problem itself. It seemed that installation ran fine (it asked configuration for eth0 and worked well with DHCP as an option). Shortly I discovered that my "yum" isn't working. After googling around I found different suggestions - uncommenting base urls in fedora.repo and fedora-update.repo. I've added a google/yahoo DNS servers and disabled ipv6 module. It didn't help. But after messing around I've found out that I can't ping any server by IP. "ifconfig" does not output eth0 at all just a lo. I opened /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, but it looked just as one desribed here http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/14/html/Deployment_Guide/s1-dhcp-configuring-client.html . I've even tried using VMWare Fusion 3.1. (I'm running Mac OS X as a host if it's relevant) instead of VirtualBox.
I'll try to configure it using bridge connection. But right now I ran out of ideas. I've decided to write here only after several hours of configuration and reinstalls.
Thank you for your attention.
