Hello, I use Silverblue 32 and installed gnome-boxes with rpm-ostree to avoid the flatpak networking problem.
I just installed an Ubuntu VM and it shows like this:
However, from my host machine:
➤ ping -c3 10.0.2.15
PING 10.0.2.15 (10.0.2.15) 56(84) bytes of data.
--- 10.0.2.15 ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 2060ms
So how do I reach that box?
Thanks @alexpl but that’s no solution. I’m not trying to connect to a remote machine from Boxes. I’m trying to connect to a VM booted with Boxes from outside of it. I ran a service in the box but I need to access it from my main computer, and it simply doesn’t work.
Oh! It turns out I had still installed the flatpak version, and then from the dash I only had a single GNOME Boxes icon that opened the flatpak one, which has this known problem.
All I had to do is:
- Open GNOME Software.
- Search GNOME Boxes.
- Uninstall the flathub version.
Now I can use the GNOME Boxes I installed with
rpm-ostree and these do have a working network bridge and can be pinged from the host machine.
