I have just finished the instalation of Gentoo.

Starting eth0
Bringing up eth0
eth0 does not exist

----same message for eth1

ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
"netmount" was not started

I have ran /etc/init.d/netmount restart

Same error message.

My card worked though the install. Anyone have any ideas?

Did you select the correct driver in the kernel? What card are you using?

Broadcom 570x Gigabit

How do I check to see if I setup my kernel correctly?

Regards,
Beenie

Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corportation NetXtreme BCM5702X Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02)

Network Controller: Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)

What should I do. I did not see this in my kernel config.

try setting the kernel to build all modules under the 1000Mbit network setup section
and do not forget to set the "module autoloading" under kernel setup section for the kernel to load appropriate drivers for your network card
reboot and check if the card is found by typing dmesg | grep -i eth0
if the card is found(has to), type lsmod to see what driver module is actually loaded - the go to /lib/modules/~~~~ etc
and remove the "never going to be unused" extra NIC driver modules.

Fixed from this post below:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-83800-highlight-bcm5702x.html

Just for future documentation: I am running a Dell D600

Network Card: Broadcom Corportation NetXtreme BCM5702X Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02)

I found the answere here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-83800-highlight-bcm5702x.html

I set my card as a M - Module instead of a *

I did the folowing:

modprobe tg3
/etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart


echo -ne "tg3\n" >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-$(uname -r | sed "s/^\([0-9]\.[0-9]\{1,2\}\).*/\1/gI")
rc-update add net.eth0 default

Works like a champ now! Thank you for all your help. Case SOLVED!
