    eth0 does not exist gentoo


    I got this problem : eth0 does not exist

    It has worked.

    my card is a Davicom Semiconductors Inc 21x4x Dec-Tulip.

    I have the drivers in the drivers folder.

    I tried modprobe de2101x.ko
    it worked.

    then I tried a ifconfig eth0 up
    and I got a eth0 does not exist.

    Anyone can help, plz ?

    if I do a modprobe tulip at each boot, I have eth0 with a good adress and a good subnet mask.

    but I can't ping the router

    I can ping the routeur

    I can ping the router now but I can't use name resolution. I have put my nameservers in the resolv.conf.

    If you still need the answer of a ifconfig -a, I will give it to you this evening. I have to go.

    If you can tell me how to load drivers at boot, it would be great. I have used genkernel and coldplug. I don't know why he doesn't load them.

    try editing /etc/network/interfaces and see if there is an entry like

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
      address <ip_address>
      netmask <netmask>
      broadcast <bcast>
      gateway <gateway>

    in gentoo its /etc/conf.d/net

    to autoload modules you would add module name to

    you should look at the handbook for specific instructions on setting network settings other than dhcp
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    well actually not totaly

    dns doesn't work and network works for about 30 sec.
    if I begin an emerge where he has to dwl, he starts and stops sudenly in the middle.

    I have put my nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf.

    If anyone can help

    with ifconfig -a, I have

    etho link encap:ethernet hw-adr:...
    inet addr: bdcast: mask:
    inet6 addr: ...
    up broadcast multicast mtu:1500 metric:1
    rx packets ...
    tx packets ...
    collisions 0

    lo link encap local loopback
    inet addr: ...
    inet6 addr ...

    sit0 link encap:ipv6-in-ipv4
