I have gentoo running on a small device running embedded software. For some reason, I can't ping any other machine in my local network, let alone outside networks. I can ping myself and the loopback address. I have read in other threads on this forum that this issue can happen with a bad resolv.conf file, but this device does not have a resolv.conf file. I have tried creating a resolv.conf file in \etc\ but it does not solve the problem and is deleted upon reboot. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

Aloha !


Uhmmm I think the : /etc/resolv.conf : file is automatically created by the net-scripts.
So make sure your : /etc/conf.d/net : contains something like this :

Code:
.
.
.
dns_servers_NETCRD="8.8.8.8"
.
.
.


where NETCRD is the name of your network card. For example : enp2s0
Oh and do not forget to add the default routes in the same : /etc/conf.d/net : file like so :

Code:
.
.
.
routes_NETCRD="default via x.x.x.x"
.
.
.


And fore even more fantastic info you can check out the manual : https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:X86/Full/Networking




Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeers,

gentoosurfer,

Welcome to Gentoo.

What is the name of the interface as shown by ifconfig?
How do you do your network setup?

/etc/resolv.conf tells the system where to go to turn domain names like google.com into IP addresses like 216.58.204.78.
Both work.

If
Code:
ping google.com
fails but
Code:
ping 216.58.204.78
works, you hawe a name resolution problem.
If neither work, its something more fundamental.
