View Full Version : Not internet on gentoo

November 11th, 2008, 05:02 PM
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 (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-x86-quickinstall.xml) and I don't have internet

Did you compile your own kernel? It looks like you might not have done make modules_install to load the modules into /lib/modules.

Install NetworkManager. It'll save you a few grey hairs. Also post the output of lspci and lsmod.
