    NO INTERNET...Error, dhcpStart: Interface eth0 is...


    Hi, I got problem in gentoo
    I Installed it and now i got NO Internet to my wired eth0 connection. (DHCP)

    Error, dhcpStart: interface eth0 is not Ethernet or 802.2 Token Ring
    ifconfig:
    eth0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 5A-3F-02-00-85-A-41-79-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00

    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
    /etc/conf.d/net
    iface_eth0="dhcp"
    It's worked fine on the 2007.0 Live-CD when I installed it...

    How do I get it working?

    interface eth0 is not Ethernet or 802.2 Token Ring

    Sounds like an incorrect or no module is loaded.

    post output of this command so we know what kind of ethernet device you are using
    Code:
    lspci | grep -i eth
    if it is a usb device then
    Code:
    lsusb | grep -i eth

    Ehh... okey

    Code:
    gentoo~# lspci | grep -i eth
    -bash lspci: command not found
    I Saw a NEW ERROR when I started ... maybe thats the problem

    Code:
    ....
    * Starting eth0
    *   You are using deprecated configuration syntax for eth0
    *   You are advised to read /etc/conf.d/net.example and upgrade it accordingly
    *   Bringing up eth0
    *     dhcp
    *        Running dhcpcd...
    Error, dhcpStart: interface eth0 is not Ethernet or 802.2 Token Ring  [ !! ]
    * ERROR: Cannot start netmount as net.eth0 could not start [ ok ]
    * Starting vixie-cron ...   [ ok ]
    * Starting local ...    [ ok ]
    
    This is gentoo.gentoo (Linux i686 2.6.19-gentoo-r5) 16:48:12
    
    gentoo ~# lspci | grep -i eth0
    -bash: lspci: command not found
    gentoo~#
    What are I doing now 0.o

    thats odd that lspci isn't on the path, especially since you seem to be running command as root, try
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci | grep -i eth
    /bin/lspci | grep -i eth

    i guess gentoo doesn't install the package that provides lspci by default, try this as my last attempt to figure out your card
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i eth

    Works! But what I see is that eth0: IEEE-1394 and thats wrong! (I Got RealTek (RTL8139 i think) wired network card)

    eth1394: eth0: IEEE-1394 IPv4 over 1394 Ethernet (fw-host0)
    8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.28
    eth2: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xe0cce400, 00:0f:b0:b9:2a:cb, IRQ 22
    eth2: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8100B/8139D'
    8139cp: 10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v1.3 (Mar 22, 2004)

    its just a case of mislabled devices, put this instead in your conf file mentioned previously
    Code:
    iface_eth2="dhcp"
