Hi I am really new to this world and maybe you will found me dumb but...
I try to install gentoo but I am unable to make internet connexion.

When I do ifconfig sometimes my card is show and when I do net-setup she is diplayed as unknow vendor or the correct one.
When a do lsmod no sungem module. If I tried to load it Fatal: Module sungem not found


I am running a PowerBook G4 5,6 my connexion use to work with Debian


What could I do

Thank

The sungem module is built into the kernel. It should have detected your device on startup. Check the dmesg (kernel log) to ensure that this is the case. What have you done to try to setup your net connection? Did you follow the directions in the handbook?

I download and burn 2006.0 CD and my ethernet just works fine maybe there is something wrong with the 2006.1 missing module or DHCP version bugy

but now there is something wrong with GLIBC_PRIVATE just after
Code:
env-update
when I do
Code:
source /etc/profile
I got an error
grep: relocation error: -lib-tls-libc.so.6: symbol _dl_out_of_memory, version GLIBC_PRIVATE not defined in file ld.so.1 with link time reference

Apparently environment variables are totally missing I can not even do a ls

How could I load sungem module if it's not on my cd? Do I have to load it on the boot 1 or after and how?
Thanks

sungem is built into the kernel, not a module, on all of the InstallCDs. There were some issues with dhcpcd, can you try manually configuring your ethernet?

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do there, but try simply using:

Code:

 # /etc/init.d/net.eth0 stop
 # ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.2
 # route add default gw 192.168.0.1
 # echo "nameserver 192.168.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf


Where 192.168.0.2 is your ip address and 192.168.0.1 is your gateway/DNS server. Does that work?

Thank you, JoseJX!

Just got my iBook 12" G4 today, but having trouble with eth0. Tried manual setting up IP with net-setup, but that didn't work. With just the few commands you supplied, I can now connect to the net and finish my Gentoo install :D
