Hi,

I'm trying to install Gentoo PPC 64 using the http://gentoo.osuosl.org/experimental/ppc64/livecd/install-ppc64-minimal-dual-core-2006.0-32ul.iso image (the 2006.0 ones do not work with the dual core it seems).

However, I cannot seem to get network support. The kernel sees eth0, and eth1 as Tigon3 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet, but after booting, neither device is available. Also /lib/modules/2.6.16-rc4-G5/kernel/drivers does not have a net directory in it, so it seems that it is not possible to manually configure networking either.

Thanks again for any help on solving this.

So the card is not brought up then. ifconfig -a will show all of the available devices. You can try ifconfig ethX up, then dhcpcd ethX to get an address.
