iceamber,

Well done!
That you can boot your own Gentoo means that the hard bit is done.

The kernel module for your ethernet interface is not loaded.
It may not even be made for your kernel.

We need to find its name.
Boot the install CD you used and run
Code:
lspci -k

This will list the kernel driers in use for your hardware.02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express
Code:
Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller
        Kernel driver in use: r8169
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)
        Kernel driver in use: ath5k
        Kernel modules: ath5k

Make a note of the module in use for your Ethernet. Above, its r8169.

Boot your install then do modprobe <module_name>
This will try to load the module.

Now look in ifcontig -a

Post any errors you see. Its possible we will need to add the module to your kernel.




I just do what you said, and the kernel driver is r8169 too, but when I do modprobe r8169, it said r8169 could not be found

iceamber,

You need to add r8169 to your kernel.

It looks like you made your own kernel as genkernel builds that driver.
Navigate the kernel make menuconfig as follows
Code:
Prompt: Realtek 8169 gigabit ethernet support                           | 
  |   Location:                                                             | 
  |     -> Device Drivers                                                   | 
  |       -> Network device support (NETDEVICES [=y])                       | 
  |         -> Ethernet driver support (ETHERNET [=y])                      | 
  | (1)       -> Realtek devices (NET_VENDOR_REALTEK [=y])     

Set Realtek 8169 gigabit ethernet support to <*>
then rebuild and reinstall your kernel

Is Anyone use KDE5 as desktop?
I have installed KDE5 follow the wiki, but when it start, no mouse in the login window, so I can't select user and enter password.
Is it means that I have not added the mouse support to kernel?
