My ongoing experiences with Ubuntu, and later Mythbuntu, as a media center with MythTV. I'm also using the system for a virtual machine server, a mediawiki server and a general all around home infrastructure base.

Networking didn't work after kernel upgrade: br0?

I did an 'apt-get dist-upgrade' and there was a kernel upgrade, so I rebooted. When the system came back there was no functional networking. Everything looked fine, I couldn't reach anything besides loopback.

On a hunch, I commented out br0 interface from /etc/network/interfaces and bounced networking (/etc/init.d/network restart) and all OK.

Then for grins I added br0 interface back and bounced networking again and, huh, all now seemed OK.

So I tried rebooted and all was still OK.

Chalking it up to a mystery for now unless problem returns.
