Date: Wed, 18 Dec 2019 16:37:21 -0500 (EST)

mbakke pushed a commit to branch master
in repository guix.

commit 8e53fe2b91d2776bc1529e7b34967c8f1d9edc32
Author: Marius Bakke <address@hidden>
Date:   Fri Dec 6 20:53:08 2019 +0100

    gnu: Remove uses of deprecated Qemu network configuration.
    * gnu/build/vm.scm (load-in-linux-vm): Move Qemu network configuration from
    ARCH-SPECIFIC-FLAGS to the Qemu command line.  Use the "-nic" option of Qemu
    instead of "-device" and "-net".
    * gnu/system/vm.scm (common-qemu-options): Do not add a '-net' command.
    (virtual-machine-compiler): Use "-nic user,..." instead of "-net".
    * doc/guix.texi (Installing Guix in a VM, Invoking guix system, Running Guix
    in a VM): Do the same for examples.
