I've searched for this problem all around the place, but nothing I've seen quite matches it

I was sort of re-installing my gentoo home server yesterday, uninstalling all the packages that have built up and don't use, cleaning out use flags that aren't used, a sync and a -uavtDN world update, all went well.

Today I wake up and find that it's completely not working. Hook up a keyboard and monitor to find that /etc/init.d/net.eth0 is missing ( my main interface ), whilst eth1 is still there (connects to a satellite proxy server)

More distressingly both /etc/conf.d/net and /etc/conf.d/net.example are missing, and as my internet connection is dialup is annoying and long to configure ( Telstra ISDN NT1 +2 modem) I tried everything to get those files back, rebuilding the reiserfs tree, the dispatch-conf archive, they are both just completely gone.

After configuring ppp0 for a long time I cant seem to get it to work, until random playing around with the file gave me an interesting result. The connect will always fail the first time, but for some reason it retries a couple of times in the coming minutes and manages to connect.

Here is the /var/log/messages for that

The question is, how do I just get my connection like I had it before, because the way it is now doesn't seem right, and there is some underlying problem I would like to get at.

Thanks

Did you upgrade to baselayout-2 during your world update? Then have a look at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/openrc-migration.xml (and better check emerge output in the future :wink:).

Okay, that explains the removal of my net.ppp0, but I used the new syntax ( " instead of (" ) for my new net.conf based on the only net.example I could find when trying to do it all again. (how lucky :) )

It still doesnt fix the

Code:

Apr 17 17:32:42 calliope /etc/init.d/net.ppp0[10431]: ERROR: interface ppp0 does not exist
Apr 17 17:32:42 calliope /etc/init.d/net.ppp0[10432]: Ensure that you have loaded the correct kernel module for your hardware
Apr 17 17:32:42 calliope /etc/init.d/net.ppp0[10411]: ERROR: net.ppp0 failed to start
Apr 17 17:32:42 calliope /etc/init.d/net.ppp0[10362]: WARNING: net.ppp0 has started, but is inactive


error I get when net.ppp0 is started.

Thanks though, (I really do start needing to read the output closer)

I think I'm having the same problem here. I just upgraded to baselayout2 and I can't start ppp0. I configured my net conf file again, but it seems my LAN is working correctly with eth1 whereas ppp0 doesn't start. I get:

Code:
ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found


and:

Code:
WARNING: net.ppp0 has started, but is inactive


The conf file seems to be almost the same as that reported in the guide though. Any idea of what could I've done wrong?
Thanks!

EDIT: The old pppoe-start works correctly anyway.

Someone has fail somewhere :)

And while you edit your first post to fix it, go with that too.
