    Networking issues on a fresh gentoo installation.

    Hey all,

    I've been encountering an issue with a fresh installation of Gentoo on a certain machine. The livecd I used to install with detected and configured my network card perfectly but on an actual boot I recieve:
    Starting eth0
       Configuration not set for eth0 - assuming DHCP
       Bringing up eth0
             network interface eth0 does not exist
             Please verify hardware or kernel module (driver)
    Starting eth1
       Configuration not set for eth1 - assuming DHCP
       Bringing up eth1
             network interace eth1 does not exist
             Please verify hardware or kernel module (driver)
    ERROR:   Problem starting needed service net.eth0
                 netmount was not started.
    Now, I understand it's looking for the appropriate module for the NIC, but I specifically added support within the kernel when compiling (Marvel Yukon NIC... By default, it isn't included).

    I'm really at a loss. I'm not sure what module I need or how to get it as I'm now networkless.

    Thanks in advance,

    The module is called "sk98lin".

    Try loading it manually and see if you get an error.

    You should use the SysKonnect (skge) driver though ... I think the kernel help for the Marvel Yukon should state that.

    Men occasionally stumble over the truth,
    but most of them pick themselves up
    and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
