    Not internet on gentoo

    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

    If there's one thing worse than a program that doesn't work when it should, it's a program that does work when it shouldn't.

    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.
    Is this for enhancing your E-peen?
