Description of problem:
When try to set up Solaris 10 U11 under KVM with the e100 nic, the network can be configured, the nic is shown under solaris, but it is unable to send network packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up an new vm select e1000 as network emulation.
2. configure the network at the solaris install
3. after installation try to use the network.
An simple icmp ping will fail.
An working network in the virtual machine.
Used iso images for installation: sol-10-u11-ga-x86-dvd.iso
Say's that Solaris will run under kvm.
Solaris disk image can be downloaded from:

Depending on the networking method used, ping may not work inside the VM. Have you tried for example connecting to some (working) website from a browser, or just using netcat to a remote host?
Trying to get an IP via DHCP will fail.
And using static an static IP and test DNS will also fail.
dig www.google.com for example.

they say something about disabling acpi
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
As far as I can see, this is still a problem in Fedora 21

ef02ef5f453 target-i386: Enable x2apic by default on KVM
A verified work-around would be to add '-cpu ...,-x2apic' to the qemu command-line. In libvirt, edit the VM's xml, add the qemu:commandline xml namespace:
<domain type='kvm' xmlns:qemu='http://libvirt.org/schemas/domain/qemu/1.0'>
then, something like:
A decent fix might be to add this cpu flag for the solaris machine type.
Interesting. I added a reference on the launchpad bug to this issue.
FWIW the native libvirt XML is:
<feature name="x2apic" policy="disable"/>
But I'd rather qemu/kvm gets the fix here than tools start disabling x2apic
See also bug 1262093.
There's an upstream qemu bug about this with more info:
So I'm just closing this bug. The end user 'fix' here will likely be virt-manager changing defaults as suggested in bug 1262093
