did you load the nic driver?

could you post the output of

#dmesg | grep eth

and

#ifconfig -a

then we'll take it from there.

I have the same problem, but I have bad news: dmesg | grep eth gave me nothing, and ifconfig -a only gave me lo. Any ideas?

Is your proper driver compiled into your kernel or at least as a modual? Also is your generic driver compiled in?

You don't have the proper support for your network card in the kernel. Can you post the output you get from the command lspci -vv .. I believe this command is available on the LiveCDs now adays ... otherwise it is available with emerge pciutils -- i.e. boot with liveCD, mount partitions, chroot, emerge pciutils, should the LiveCD not have it.

And while your at it, post the output from lsmod while booted from the LiveCD.

after booting the live cd, mounting, chrooting, and then mounting some drives I forgot.... and installing links2, I have this:

worldgnat.0catch.com/lspcivvout
worldgnat.0catch.com/lsmodout

Please excuse the popups.

-Peter

P.S. I read another forum where someone had a problem with the driver not loading - I tried to modprobe 8139too, but it didn't work, so I booted from the livecd, mounted the drives, and after a while I got the driver here:

Code:
cp /lib/modules/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r6/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko /mnt/gentoo/lib/modules/2.65.11-gentoo-r6/kernel/drivers/net


big woop, now I have the driver but modprobe says that 8139too.ko isn't in the proper format. I know zip about modprobe, so I copied anything I could find in the /lib/modules/ dir that started with modules. to my hard disk, in the hopes that it would be able to find it. Now I'm not so stupid I didn't recognise that my pc and the live cd use 2 different kernel versions (gentoo-2.6.11-r3, live cd and gentoo-2.6.11-r6, my laptop), so I changed the modules.dep file to read /lib/modules/2.6.11-gentoo-r6......, but then modprobe complained, and when I rebooted, all of the directories were changed to read my kernel anyway, and while before modprobe read that it couldn't find mii.ko, now it complains that 8139too.ko is the wrong format, so I have no idead what to do.

You have to select the driver as a module in your *own* kernel. Then

#make && make modules_install

copy your new kernel to /boot (mount it first)

and reboot.

all should be fine.

I just compiled my kernel twice with every driver under Device Drivers --> Network Support --> Ethernet (10 or 100mBit) and ethernet (1000mbit). I have a Compaq Presario 1200, AMD Athlon 4 laptop if that helps.

I venture to say you did not get ALL drivers, I bet you missed the Tulip section? I looked at your lsmod output and it shows the tulip driver as loaded. This would be found under
Code:
Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)  --->
  Tulip family network device support  --->
    [*] "Tulip" family network device support
    <*>   DECchip Tulip (dc2114x) PCI support ... or <M> if you do module, for which "modprobe tulip"


Try the tulip driver and report back if that works or not.
