When I boot gentoo from the livecd (2004.2), the network is detected correctly and network connection is available. But, when I boot from hdd, dhcpcd fails. This is an extract from log made by metalog:
Nov 4 22:09:23 [dhcpcd] dhcpStart: ioctl SIOCGIFHWADDR: No such device_
Nov 4 22:09:24 [rc-scripts] ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
Nov 4 22:09:24 [rc-scripts] "netmount" was not started.
In result of "ifconfig" does not appear the "eth0" section, but there is a "lo" section. If I run "ifconfig" when booted from livecd, both "eth0" and "lo" section appear.
Steps to Reproduce:
looks like you didnt setup all the drivers for your network card
I am sorry, that I forgot to come back and mark as CLOSED
No need for apologies, you don't have to CLOSE.
