Hello togehter,

i have a problem to install Gentoo with the universal-cd 2005.1-r1.

The network gigabit adapter Marvel 88E8053 (Rev. 15) is shown
with lspci but not supported during the boot.
So i have no chance to configure eth0.

The posts in this forum showed me nearly the same problem,
but i have no chance to load drivers from the internet without
the network configuration.

The manual load of modules like modprobe sk98lin for example
have no success.

Do you have any ideas for me to start the installation of gentoo ?

Thank you and

best regards

hare

Perhaps try booting with Knoppix or DamnSmallLinux to do the install, and see if they have support for it. I had a problem with my nforce4 board's yukon chip, and just slapped in a pci ethernet card instead.

Its a known and reported bug sadly... nothing much you can do here except run a networkless installation, download the drivers separately (on USB stick or other removable media) and install it when your Gentoo installation has succeeded.
