I am using a new 14" ibook G4 and tried to install gentoo. The installation with the minimal liveCD worked fine and now I have a working system (dual-boot).
But when I boot from the harddrive the network doesn't work. My router is an old AirPort Base-Station connected over an Ethernet-cable (because airport-extreme doesn't work). I have tried to use "dhcpcd eth0", "net-setup eth0" and "/etc/init.d/net.eth0 start" but nothing works. What is my mistake?

Have you activated the "Sun GEM" support in your kernel? Thats what I need for my Powerbook, but I think it is the same for your iBook...

If so, is does "# ifconfig -a" give you a eth0 interface? Or what are the error messages?

Do what he said, and for everybody else, If youve got a newish mac you want to use SunGem.

Go through your menuconfig carefully when you make your kernel

alternatively, when you boot from your gentoo live cd, then copy the /proc/config.gz file which is a working kernel configuration. use that configuration, it should have everyhting set correctly for your system.

cheers,
