When booted from the Live CD, I reach the phase where I should emerge genkernel to compile my kernel
and the emerging does not work because it's not able to resolve domain names. The network WORKS if I
exit the chrooted enviroinment (I can successfully ping several web sites). It stops again if I chroot again.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert the cd and boot from it
2. correctly set the system date
3. mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc (I don't know wether thi sis relevant or not)
4. chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
5. emerge genkernel OR ping any internet address
Nothing. I gave up. I couldn't go on. i can't configure the kernel compilation myself
It should have connected to the net and let me emerge genkernel
I used the Ubuntu Live CD in order to perform theese steps and it worked. But in the end, the installed
system doesn't connect to the net again
You apparently missed the part of the install guide where it says to 'cp -L
/etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf' in order to copy the
/etc/resolv.conf from the LiveCD into the chroot before chroot'ing.

No, I did not miss that part. I copied the dns configuration to /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolve.conf indeed !
I also took care to cat /etc/resolve.conf in a consolle AND to cat /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolve.conf in another.
And they were equal.
Could you reproduce the bug ?
Could you also verify that you were working with /etc/resolv.conf and not
/etc/resolve.conf as noted below? I always mistype that filename...

yes, I have to apologize. You made a point ! I had copied /etc/resolv.conf to /mnt/gentoo/etc/
resolve.conf (notice the final "e" :-( )
I'm sorry for having signaled this bug but I was really sure ! I checked several times alway blindly hitting
tab for name completing of both /etc/resolv.conf AND /mnt/gentoo7etc/resolve.conf
So when I spelled it wrong the first time, I kept not noticing the e !
I'm sorry !
Now it works ! I think this is closed...
