(Solved)Gentoo network error, netmount not started, eth0?
Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I recently did a gentoo install, and in the gentoo environment now I cannot emerge, or ping, or anything whatsoever that has to do with network services. I have looked at everything that I can think of, I just cannot figure it out. I know though, that the network card does work because I have used it on slackware, and various live cds work.
Well when I boot up I notice the message
This error also happens when I try to manually run
*Bringing eth0 up via DHCP [!!]
*ERROR: Problem starting needed services
* "netmount" was not sarted
So the netmount script will not work at all.
when I use ifconfig -a I get
so I know that there is something not right with eth0, or rather I think it, so when I ifconfig eth0 up
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overrruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carriers:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
ok so the problem now seems to be my eth0 not being properly registered, but when I try "dhcpcd eth0 start" or "up" nothing gets returned.
ifconfig eth0 up
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
I know though that my card is detected because it shows up properly with "lspci"
can any of you guys please help me get network connectivity so that I can ping the net, and emerge etcetera,
lspci #note this is just the section showing the card being printed out correctly#
