Hey, I've done the unthinkable and scrapped gentoo in favor of Arch linux. NOw I've got a small prob w/ my network, it fails every other startup. I know I had a fix for dhcp not starting in gentoo, I just put "dhcpcd -k" in (I think) /etc/conf.d/local.stop Now I'd like to know how to run that command everytime I shutdown without typing it manually? I haven't quite learned to use the arch init scripts yet, so if any arch user could point me in the right direction, I'd greatly apreciate it.

Well thier forums are rather slow, so I thought I'd try a faster moving forum like this one, besides not everyone in OTW uses gentoo, I know there are a few who use (or have used) arch.

Just putting dhcpd in my daemons list in /etc/rc.conf fixed that issue for me.

Your devices are probably getting swapped. I had this problem with udev on arch (you can search for my post in the arch forums).

My solution was to explicitly name the devices in udev by their hardware address:

/etc/udev/rules.d/network.rules
Code:
KERNEL=="eth*", SYSFS{address}=="00:00:60:70:50:90", NAME="e1000"
KERNEL=="eth*", SYSFS{address}=="00:00:f0:10:80:0a", NAME="ipw2100"


It's a better idea to use their forums for Arch support questions. Arch is a bit different than Gentoo in how they do things.
