I just finished my gentoo installation and I have rebooted, now for some reason eth0 doesn't show up. I have all of the drivers included when I was configuring the kernel as far as I know. Here's the relevant output from /var/log/rc.log
Code:
* Bringing up interface eth0
*     Caching network module dependencies
*     ERROR: interface eth0 does not exist
*     Ensure that you have loaded the correct kernel module for your hardware
* ERROR: net.eth0 failed to start
* ERROR: cannot start netmount as net.eth0 would not start

Here's the relevant output from lspci -nnk
Code:
00:19.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection [8086:1502] (rev 06)
       Subsystem: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection [8086:4953]
       Kernel driver in use: e1000e
       Kernel modules: e1000e

Any help is appreciated, I've been trying to fix this for a while.

Default is to get nonsense names from udev and maybe now eudev. Run "ifconfig" to see your interface names. Mine wants to be something like "empanada".

Another "feature" from Red Hat's linux-like OS.

Exactly as Tony0945 says, see also https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Eudev/Network_device_names

Cool it works, thank you to both of you! I just ran the command in the link you sent me
Code:
touch /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules

then I rebooted and it worked! :D
