Hi all,
I know this question has been asked several times before, but I have not found a previous posting that addresses the issue. It seems that most of the problems that users have are related to missing the step of copying the /etc/resolve.conf to /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolve.conf. Unfortunately, this is not my problem. I have successfully copied the file resolve.conf from /etc/resolve.conf to /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolve.conf. My network is configured with a linux gateway which serves as a DNS server, DHCP, and a firewall. All of my other LAN clients work perfectly and have the exact same contents in the resolve.conf file. I can ping my gateway, and if I use another computer to get www.google.com's IP address, I can ping it as well. Since this is not a routing issue, it is clearly a DNS problem. Below are the exact steps I followed, if I missed anything, please inform me.

resolve.conf
Code:

nameserver 192.168.0.1


commands
Code:

cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
env-update
source /etc/profile
emerge --sync

tnine9,

Throughout your post you have referred to
Code:
/etc/resolve.conf
with an etra e.
You code snippet is correct with
Code:
/etc/resolv.conf


Is this just a typo or is it wrong on your box too ?

HA! You were right NeddySeagoon. Thanks for the help, I just needed that extra pair of eyes. The developers curse of misspellings has struck again!

I just had to comment on this because I went though this this weekend. Over the years I have installed Gentoo 3 times... and everytime this has thrown me. resolv.conf NOT resolve.conf. I always tell myself that I will remember next time, but this weekend proved that I won't. I always end up searching the forums for about 10 minutes, exiting the chroot environment to make sure the network is working, etc. Then someone's question on the forum reminds me that I'm an idiot and I added an extra 'e' and I start my sync.

So this is really just a big METOO tnine9. I hope you enjoy Gentoo. You will learn alot.
