KVM: network bridge install garbles config

Hello, this is just a heads-up.

I’m new to virtualization. I installed KVM with tools and said Yes to the Network Bridge question. After that the host wlan was no longer usable. Wicked debug:

wicked: Reading sysctl file '/etc/sysctl.conf'
wicked: ni_sysconfig_read(/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-lo)
wicked: ni_sysconfig_read(/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-br0)
wicked: ifcfg-br0: bridge config contains wireless variables    <------------------------
wicked: ni_sysconfig_read(/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0)
wicked: ni_compat_generate_interfaces: compat:suse:/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-lo:0
wicked: ni_compat_generate_interfaces: compat:suse:/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0:0

I did reset my config and now have wlan back.


When your system is set to support virtualization,
Even the HostOS might need to be configured to use a Linux Bridging Device (eg br0 or whatever) and won’t have access directly to the physical network interface. Or, shouldn’t.
