Hi. I make a try to put gentoo on my Laptop for second time (and I hope the last). I made a fresh install but after reboot
Code:
ifconfig -a
shows me only loopback. I feel like my Ethernet module is not loaded for some reason and I don't know which is exactly. I know that is Realtek (8105 if I am not wrong). What I should do to make it work? My laptop is a Lenovo p400 touchscreen. Thank's for advanced

Ok. I got it. Says Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E, Kernel driver in use r8169. Now what to do? I used once upon a time gentoo. I remember that then had a Gui installer. From then until now I use FreeBSD. I don't know how Linux works and after all this years, I am starting it from the beginning. I remember on previous setup enp1s0 was automatically loaded. This time doesn't :( I remember that I made exactly all handbook said and for now I build a generic kernel will all modules.

needs to have support enabled in kernel. how did you make kernel, genkernel or manual? enter chroot, If genkernel:
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all
If manual:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux;make menuconfig
edit menuconfig to include
Code:
Device Drivers
[*] Network device support  --->
[*]   Ethernet driver support  --->
[*]   Realtek devices
<M>     Realtek 8169 gigabit ethernet support
recompile, recopy, reboot

After
Code:
make
make modules_install
make install

I copy my bzimage to /boot and rename it as vmlinuz-3.12.13-gentoo
I run
Code:
mount /boot
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Rebooted but nothing changed :(
I remember that during install my kernel was the simple generic. to build it I run:
Code:
emerge genkernel
genkernell all

Οk. I made it using
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all

But tells me eth0 instead of enp1s0.
PS. Now eth0 works and I am connected to internet but why is not telling enp1s0?
PS2: Thank's alot! Gentoo is really hard but at least forum is friendly and helps!

keep an eye on the name it may change
current default is the longer en... name assigned by udev. udev is supposed to change the kernel assigned name which is eth0 .. eth1 .. etc
theoretically you had to take action to prevent udev renaming so there is a mystery still

Ok. And one last question. My static ip works perfect but takes too long to bring up interface on boot. Why?

About 30 seconds but I have a strange activity. After
Code:
rc-update add udev boot
now boots as enp1s0 almost immediately but as dhcp. Seems like ignores my static ip :?:

What configuration directives do you have for interface enp1s0?

you deleted symlink /etc/init.d/net.eth0 and created /etc/init.d/net.enp1s0?
Code:
cd /etc/init.d
rm net.eth0
ln -s net.lo net./enp1s0

edited /etc/conf.d/net to globally replace eth0 with enp1s0 ?

if above are done and problems persist post /etc/conf.d/net
