I have installed a brand new gentoo system from stage3 of 2005.0 , it's working fine, and I configured my network with dhcp.
last night, after installed the base system , I do " emerge -uD world && etc-update && source /etc/profile ".
several config files changed while using etc-update , I use "-3" when it ask my answer, and "y" to all the replace request.
after rebooting my system, I got an error : " netmount not started " . and dhcp failed.
"ifconfig" shows only lo.
"dhcpcd" eth0 got its address and network works fine.
but I still got "netmount not started" error while booting the system and dhcp still failed and I must use dhcpcd to configure my network after login.
my NIC card driver was compiled into the kernel.
before "emerge -uD world" everything is fine .
anyone can tell me why ?
thanks a lot! :D

I can't give you the solution, but I think I can tell you why. The recent update you did updated your net.eth0, net.lo, and netmount scripts in /etc/init.d among many others. I noticed that the new net.eth0 is way different from the old one, so I did not merge mine. I think that is where your problem is, but I am not sure how to fix it.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Hi.

First, a very important point to all noobs: NEVER RUN ETC-UPDATE BLINDLY!!! etc-update will change your system's configuration happily, in some cases to the point it won't boot, if you allow it to. I would recommend using dispatch-conf, since it creates backups of your config files. Regardless of the tool used, one should always carefully look at the proposed changes in the config files.
Now, you probably have updated the init scripts, but not the config files. As you can see
Code:
atl64 teste # equery belongs /etc/conf.d/net
[ Searching for file(s) /etc/conf.d/net in *... ]
sys-apps/baselayout-1.11.12-r4 (/etc/conf.d/net)
atl64 teste #

the /etc/conf.d/net was installed by baselayout. You could try emerging it again and then update the config files. You probably just need to update the syntax in the file.

after set: iface_eth0="dhcp".

No problem. Glad you've solved it.
The warning wasn't meant to you specifically. It's just that it seems a lot of people are facing the consequences of using etc-update blindly.
If your problem is solved, please add [solved] to the title of the thread.

I had a similar problem, and re-emerged baselayout and didn't notice a message about older net.eth* files in /etc/init.d/. It said they needed to be made symlinks to net.lo. Netmount started after changing those and rebooting. Is netmount the replacement for the net.eth* scripts?
