{UPDATE}: By a stroke of luck I found the fix. It turns out I was using a out dated version of systemrescuecd (4.5.0)

So I Downloaded from Sourceforge the version 4.7.1 iso and chose (the ALTERNATIVE kernel) and my wireless is working. :D I hope this will help others who get stuck like I did on this PC.


So I am a total gentoo noob who just joined here in order to solve my problem and I am having a problem with my wireless devices on the systemrescuecd and the gentoo install disk (I have also tried installing from a alternative live cd the problem is described below)

In the best way I can put it the HP stream 11 makes a good linux machine how ever there are 3 drawbacks.

1. limited eMMC storage.
2. Bad wifi drivers (needs editing AFTER installation)
3. NO ETHERNET

That is the physical problem.

The digital problem is both the gentoo install cd and the systemrescuecd seem to not support my wifi (and I cannot use Ethernet)

where the live cd (Ubuntu 15.10) is not working due to the emmc and /mnt/gentoo command seems to default to a partition called "Computer" (I know it is not called that but I have no Idea what else to call it)

Help would be nice. I would like to stop grinding my head against the wall of doom and push onward with this install.

Thanks in advance.
