Ok well I purchased a brand new IBM X40 and am installing gentoo. For some reason when I chroot into my new environment I lose all ifconfig function along with no ping or connection. I need to emerge a j2sdk file but for some reason I cant use links and get the file. Unless someone knows a way around this. Please help.

from the installation handbook.

copy DNS Info

One thing still remains to be done before we enter the new environment and that is copying over the DNS information in /etc/resolv.conf. You need to do this to ensure that networking still works even after entering the new environment. /etc/resolv.conf contains the nameservers for your network.

Code Listing 3: Copy over DNS information

(The "-L" option is needed to make sure we don't copy a symbolic link)
# cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf



i think you missed that. ;)

cheers

I copied over the dns info, and when I do that it asks me if I want to overwrite the existing file and I agree. And I still dont get the option for ifconfig.
