Hi, I'm installing Gentoo on my Powerbook for the first time and having some difficulties getting firewire to work as an ethernet adapter. When running ifconfig -a, eth0 shows up after doing a modprobe on eth1394, but dhcpcd fails to grab an IP address. Taking a look at dmesg piped through grep "1394" shows the following:

ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry 'ip1394'
ohci1394: $Rev: 1250 $ Ben Collins <bcollins@debian.org>

ieee1394: raw1394: /dev/raw1394 device initialized

dhcpcd logs:
dhcpcd[####]: dhcpStart: interface eth0 is not Ethernet or 802.2 Token Ring

According to an lspci, the device in my PB is a:
0002:24:0e.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth 2 FireWire (rev 81)

Since that device is not specifically listed in the kernel .config, I have tried enabling practically every driver for firewire I could find, but nothing has changed. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks much!

as your dhcpcd log tells you with the line "interface eth0 is not Ethernet or 802.2 Token Ring", your dhcpcp don't support eth1394, only ethernet and tokenring
you can try an alternative package, like net-misc/dhcp-agent if you are using net-misc/dhcpcd
maybe it supports eth1394

good luck!
