Oh maaAAaan. I keep trying but I come up with NOTHING!! I am quite frustrated now.
Problem: I cannot get my network working in Gentoo.
Situation: Using "install-x86-universal-2004.1.iso"
My network interface is detected.
I am using a cable modem behind a d-link router that has DHCP enabled.
I ran net-setup eth0 and chose DHCP.
I tried to ping google and I received an unknown host error.
I seriously need a step by step walk through. I've read The manual up to the part of bootstrapping. I'm trying to do a stage1 install but I need to be able to connect to the internet.
I readin the handbook. "# emerge dhcp" Where do I run this command?Quote:
If you require Gentoo to automatically obtain an IP address for your network interface(s), you need to install dhcpcd (or any other DHCP Client) on your system. If you don't do this now, you might not be able to connect to the internet after the installation!
Also, I recall something about a dhcpcd command?
Ok, step one. Boot into Gentoo. Okay, now set a password for root. Ok, done. Now start up the handbook on the cd so I can copy and paste commands easily and use it for reference. Ok, now alt+f2 and login as root. Now follow all the instruction up to right when you're going to bootstrap. Right? When and WHERE do I setup my network?
What is HD and what do I put there?Quote:
# dhcpcd eth0
Some network admins require that you use the
hostname and domainname provided by the DHCP server.
In that case, use
# dhcpcd -HD eth0
My router's IP is 192.168.0.1
A cable test is successful between the router and the computer.
I have 2 other computers running winxp connected to the router and the internet works for them. my computer is running win98se and the netword works fine.
Right now I'm going to run 'emerge dhcp' right when I boot into gentoo.
I do ifconfig and I get eth0 and lo.
