Hi,

This is Daryl J Hudson III, when the installation of Gentoo Linux is completed on my computer, the network card does not work. After that I tried run /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start, it said it could not start. I used net-setup but the command is not recognized. I am not getting what I am missing. Can anyone help me to solve this issue? Please do reply...



Thanks
Daryl J Hudson III

Try
Code:
 lspci -k
this will show you all the hardware and kernel modules which are loaded for that hardware, have a look for ethernet or network as in
Code:
gentoo phil #  lspci -k | grep -i network
06:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000
gentoo phil #  lspci -k | grep -i ethernet
08:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)
then you can configure your kernel with correct drivers

daryljhudson,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Networking is one of the few things that dosn't 'just work' without some manual intervention.
It requires the correct kernel module to be build and loaded. The loading part is automatic if the module is set as <*> in the kernel, otherwise the module must be named in /etc/conf.d/modules to have it auto loaded.

You need to make the net.eth0 to net.lo symlink in /etc/init.d/ as its no longer created for you. Then you can refer to eth0 in /etc/conf.d/net if you need to.
A blank or missing net file will cause dhcpcd to be invoked, so that needs to be emerged if that what you want.

net-setup in not needed within your own install.

You don't need to put your name in the thread title, you can use the link in the list of predefined searches to find threads you have posted in.
