The only thing I can find is that the new F12beta guest does not have
'bridge' module loaded in kernel as compared with a working existing F11
guest. I tried loading the 'bridge' module but this did not make any
difference after restarting the network. I then tried rebooting the
guest but then the 'bridge' module is not loaded again. Is the 'bridge'
module necessary? I thought I had read where this was no longer
necessary for guest bridging.
