I have successfully installed gentoo, but without internet! I am missing the device eth0. I emerged dhcp and configured /etc/conf.d/net but nothing changed.
I was told to look in "/lib/modules/*/kernel/drivers/net" but i don't have a "kernel/drivers/net" folder, although I just found that I have a "/lib/modules/*/build/drivers/net" with a bunch of stuff in it?
The only way to install anything (and get internet) is to boot the live cd and mount my whole system. Then chroot into it!
I followed the installation guide here and I don't have internet
Can we get some information on the type of network interface you are trying to get running.
An lspci output would be handy.
lsmod returns nothing
lspci says that my ethernet is Rhine III
My system is the Via Artigo Pico ITX, without modifications
I really have no clue what is wrong other than that their isn't a eth0 or any network devices in /dev
I followed the install guide on gentoo.org
When I compiled the kernel I didn't change any options because I didn't see anything worth changing (I think)
The only way to get internet it to boot the live cd (which gets the internet) and mount my system and chroot.
Live cd does have modules in lsmod?
Not much else
# modprobe via-rhine
I have no modules (via_rhine), where or how do I get them
I would suggest that you use the genkernel for now, once you get everything sorted out then you can compile your own kernel.
