Okay, I installed gentoo on my beige G3 and everything went fairly smooth. dhcpcd eth0 worked fine during install. Now that I've rebooted into my system, I get the following message towards the end of the boot process:

/sbin/runscript.sh: /sbin/dhcpcd: No such file or directory
* Failed to bring eth0 up [ !! ]

* ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
* "netmount" was not started.

What the hell? dhcpcd not found!?! Did I screw something up or what? I really don't feel like starting over since it took 10+ hours to compile just the base system. None of the other netmount problems I've read about involved dhcpcd not found errors. One thing...I had to recompile my kernel as I forgot to add support for ext3 file systems. This shouldn't have any effect on the existence of /sbin/dhcpcd though... I'm stumped.

Sounds like dhcpcd didn't get installed. Try this thread to get back into your system, set up your networking as in the install process (etc.), and run "emerge net-misc/dhcpcd". Everything should be happy, then.

It sounds like possibly your network card is not being started an longer. You can either verify that you have support for your NIC compiled directly into your kernel or you can compile it as a module option and then be sure to add the module to the modules.autoload file. This is just my hunch given your description, I had similar problems on a PC. I can't remember very well what the Gentoo starts up like on my PPC I haven't messed with it in a while (I mean the Bootable CD on my G3 white&blue). I use my PC's more often with the Gentoo boot CD's.

Good luck, I hope you get it figured out!!

Thanks for the fast replies guys! I have to go to class now, but I'll try the first suggestion when I get back. I know my ethernet driver (bmac) was compiled into the kernel. (not as a module). So I'm pretty sure it isn't an issue of my network card not being recognized. Why wouldn't dhcpcd be installed during the emerge system step?... Anyway, thanks again. I'll report back when I get it working.

try just emerging dhcpcd :)

It was masked (for about a 15 minute period) a few days ago, probably about the same time you did your emerge rsync.

I used the install cd to boot and chrooted into my environment just like delta described. I then emerged dhcpcd. A reboot and now all is well. Thank you all for your help.
