Hi Experts, I recently installed Gentoo on my server and when it boots up, I donot see any of 1 G interfaces on the server.

Quote:
lspci -vv
06:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation I210 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)



I have build this in the kernel as below :-
Quote:
Driver Support --> Ethernet Drivers --> Intel® 82575EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller/Intel® 82576 Gigabit Ethernet Controller


When I reboot, I see no interfaces except lo. When I boot from livecd, I see all the interfaces.

I even tried to download the drivers from Intel site-igb-5.3.2.tar.gz and manually install and load it using modprobe igb, but still not go..I am not sure how to get this fixed as I dont see any 1G interface .


Appreciate all your help in advance.

Try to enable ACPI in the kernel.
I had the same problem with Intel 82576 and enabling ACPI in the kernel helps me.

you may build everything as kernel module.

and i do not see any ifconfig -a

also debian or so has a list with those lspci numbers and which kenrel module to use...

basically => lscpi -kk (or so ) => google the xxxx:xxxx number code and build that as module ...
