    eth0 problem during Gentoo boot ("netmount" was not started.)


    Does anyone know why when I boot Gentoo my internet doesn't work? It works during install, but not after I reboot with GRUB.

    Thanks.

    1. Did you compile the driver into the kernel, or as a module? If as a module, try compiling it into the kernel to spare the need to auto-load it at boot anyway.

    2. Did you configure dhcpcd the way statened in the handbook? (In the newest gentoo, a black /etc/conf.d/net should give you DHCP by default, but you can also use this in that file:

    Code:
    iface_eth0="dhcp"
    dhcpcd_eth0="-HDN"
    And last - but not least - you did compile the right driver, right?

    You know what, I probably didn't compile it in the kernel. I did specify it in the /etc/conf.d/net though. I'll try that and then we'll see if that works. Thanks.

    Also remember that if you use lilo, you need to run /sbin/lilo again after the kernel compile... Grub should automaticly use the new kernel.

    did you emerge the networking tools you would need before quitting the live cd? dhcpcd for example..
