Hello everybody

I use Slack, and searching for new challenges installed Gentoo

Everything went fine in the instalation (i installed 2 times, one of them via minimal CD and the other via slackware)

ifconfig showed both eth0 and lo and my usb keyboard worked fine

(obs) when compiling the kernel, the handbook says to activate the option
Device Drivers --->
[*] HID Devices --->
<*> USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support

But "HID Devices" ins't there, there is "HID Support", but, again, "USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support" isn't there inside

But when i rebooted, my USB keyboard stopped working (my PS/2 works fine) and my eth0 do not show when I "ifconfig"

So, any idea??

You need both USB and INPUT support activated ( 'depends on').
To see what is needed, you can search in the kernel-config menu using /.
Search for HID and there should be more info ( scroll down a bit to find the right one), and you can check whether it is all selected.
In my case it looks like this:

Code:
 Symbol: USB_HID [=m]                                                   
  │ Type  : tristate                                                       
  │ Prompt: USB HID transport layer                                         
  │   Defined at drivers/hid/usbhid/Kconfig:4                               
  │   Depends on: USB [=y] && INPUT [=y]                                   
  │   Location:                                                             
  │     -> Device Drivers                                                   
  │       -> HID support                                                   
  │         -> USB HID support                                             
  │   Selects: HID [=y]     



Hope this helps,

Alex.
