I get this message on boot, or when starting a service (such as samba).
Code:

 * Starting
find: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/: No such file or directory
 *       no interface module has been loaded
/etc/init.d/net.eth0: line 34: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/helpers.d/functions: No such file or directory
 * Starting
find: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/: No such file or directory
 *       no interface module has been loaded
 * ERROR:  Problem starting needed service net.lo
 *         samba was not started.


I also get this in my /var/log/messages :
Code:

Jul  4 00:58:27 gentoo rc-scripts: no interface module has been loaded
Jul  4 00:58:27 gentoo rc-scripts: no interface module has been loaded
Jul  4 00:58:27 gentoo rc-scripts: ERROR:  Problem starting needed service net.lo
Jul  4 00:58:27 gentoo rc-scripts:         samba was not started.


This leaves with no networking on boot BTW.
I am running Gentoo 2006.0/~AMD64 if that could be an issue.
Where can I get hold of this missing directory?

Thanks

Did someone forget to etc-update?

All of a sudden i reboot my PC and as I boot I start getting these messages. What does this mean? I have entries in /etc/init.d for net.eth0 & net.eth1

The whole message when booting reads:
/etc/init.d/net.lo line34: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/helpers.d/functions: no such file or directory
no interface module has been loaded
cannot start netmount as net.eth0 could not start

/etc/init.d/net.eth0 line34: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/helpers.d/functions: no such file or directory
no interface module has been loaded
cannot start netmount as net.eth0 could not start


/etc/init.d/net.eth1 line34: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/helpers.d/functions: no such file or directory
no interface module has been loaded
cannot start netmount as net.eth1 could not start


I have 2 nics when I do a lspc it shows 1 nic as SMC1211TX and the other as D-Link rtl3189
So I checked my kernel to make sure I had them enabled which I do. But really just 2 days ago I had no problem with getting network access at all. They would get IP addresses at boot up.

Waassuupp with this!!!
Thnx.

It's the baselayout update to 1.12.4-rX. Most people seem to solve it by deleting net.eth0 and net.eth1 from /etc/init.d and making them symlinks to net.lo.

I had the same problem. Solved it the way wynn described (before I read it here).

Why did the baselayout break things?

Why didn't you symlink your network scripts? If you did that in the first place then this would have never happened.

How do you do that? I must have missed it completely.

cd /etc/init.d
rm -f net.eth0
ln -s net.lo net.eth0

Rinse and repeat for every net.* script except of course for net.lo

Howdy,

I'm afraid I'm having this same series of error messages, and etc-update didn't help. I'm not sure where to go from here, and would welcome any advice. Just to be clear, my individual network adapter scripts are linked to net.lo; it is net.lo that is refusing to start.

Thanks

Edit: I gave in and did a full system update, and that fixed the problem, so this must be an older issue (yeah, I know all the posts are much older than mine... that's what 270 days of uptime get you). Anyway, yeah, this is no longer an issue for me.
