Replacing network card in Ubuntu 7.10

In my new job, I was provided with a VMWare image running Ubuntu 7.10 which contains my own dev environment. I wanted to run it using VirtualBox instead of VMWare. The migration was fairly straight-forward since VirtualBox can read VMWare disk files. However, networking didn't work.

I found the answer here: http://mydebian.blogdns.org/?p=177#comments

Basically, it was due to persistent udev rules. To fix it, I did this:

  1. sudo rmmod e1000
  2. sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
  3. sudo modprobe e1000
  4. sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

Et viola!
