2.6.12-gentoo-r6: Marvell Yukon network card problem
I am installing a stage3 gentoo via liveCD in a toshiba satellite m50 with marvell yukon 88E8036 ethernet card, and the liveCD is not able to recognise my card. After i installed the basic installation (no GUI) i downloaded the sysconnect driver from www.skd.de (version 8.28, and yeah their site moved from syskonnect.de) and installed it as a kernel patch.
I think i managed to get my network card detected by the kernel because when i issue ifconfig eth0, it gaves me the right mac address.
The problem is that i can't use the net-setup, dhcpd and those kind of commands since i think it's not included in the core installation of my system.
i tried to enter gentoo via liveCD and then chroot into my kernel, but my card is not detected.
Do you have any solution so i can configure my network? This network card has become the largest problem in installing gentoo.
thank you very much.
