Hi,

I installed futoo linux and everything was fine with the static IP configuration I used. But when I switched over to DHCP, things are not working. The PC was not able to keep the configuration it received. Upon some troubleshooting, I came to know that the Ethernet interface is flapping, continuously. Everything works fine when I boot from a live cd. Here is the output from dmesg.
Code:

[  108.704205] b44: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.
[  108.704209] b44: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.
[  113.707149] b44: eth0: powering down PHY
[  114.704118] b44: eth0: Link is down.
[  114.723657] b44: eth0: powering down PHY
[  117.704204] b44: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.
[  117.704208] b44: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.
[  122.795052] b44: eth0: powering down PHY
[  123.704117] b44: eth0: Link is down.
[  123.723725] b44: eth0: powering down PHY


Any idea?

Thanks in advance

Could you post the content of your /etc/init.d/net.eth0 ?
Also, you might want to try and check http://groups.google.com/group/funtoo-dev When openrc .5 with the new network scripts was first introduced, there were a couple of posts about the various problems and solutions.

I have just added dhcpcd to the start-up. I read somewhere that this is a problem with b44 driver. Not sure... it was working perfectly with static IP config.

are you following the correct networking guide?

and as TheAbu asked please post your /etc/init.d/net.eth0

and of course you have CONFIG_B44=y and CONFIG_MII=y enabled in your kernel?
Code:
egrep '^CONFIG_(B44|MII)' /usr/src/linux/.config
