Ok, so I'll go ahead and publish the video.  At just wanted to make sure
ya'll were ok with it.  And most likely the "issues" I'm running into
are just user-error.  I just wanted to check.

I downloaded the latest Hurd image from the Hurd guide:

$ wget http://people.debian.org/~sthibault/hurd-i386/debian-hurd.img.tar.gz
$ tar -xz < debian-hurd.img.tar.gz
$ kvm -m 1G -drive cache=writeback,file=$(echo debian-hurd-*.img)

I couldn't install anything because running the latest "readily
available debian Hurd image" like this:

qemu-system-i386  --curses -enable-kvm --no-reboot \
                  -drive file=debian-hurd-20200731.img,cache=writeback -m 1G \
                  -net user,hostfwd=tcp:

Did not auto set up my networking.  Yes I could have manually set the
pfinet translator (or lwip), but I just didn't want to show my IP
address in a public video.  Also, running "which ifup" got me no
results.  Maybe the latest image doesn't have that command installed?

With ssh, I tried to connect to port "2222".  So again a lot of these
"issues" is probably user-error.  Apologies for the noise.

And I understand that you don't have time to watch the full video.  :)
Thanks for giving me some pointers :)
