weird network problems with 2006.1 live cd!!
to describe the problem a little more, doind ifconfig brings me only the loopback interface, but the eth0 is recognised as my realtek network adapter. when I do ifconfig -a, it appears... if I do ifconfig eth0 up, there are no errors but it still won't work... I tried to use net-setup eth0, but still no Ip adress with DHCP. So I tried to assing an IP manually, didn't work either..... At the end, I installed gentoo networkless, mounting eth0 in the network adapters list, but when i boot from the hard drive, same problem, and even worse: there's something like a flag missing, it's SIOCSIFFLAGS. Another bad thing is that I can't emerge a darn package because I don't have access to my network either way! please help me before I throw my notebook by the window for refund!!
i might have found a hint! on a post i found on google.ca/linux said that the error i had (SIOCSIFFLAGS) could possibly mean a IRQ conflict. Considering my situation, i think this may be the problem, but how do I resolvesuch a conflict if my darn bios (from a HP DV8000 Notebook) does not offer any IRQ options? i must at least give it a try, i mean, at this point....
