From Slashdot, credit goes to temojen and some Anonymous Coward, regarding what would happen if Gentoo Linux made beer:
A bag of Yeast, Hops, Wheat, and instructions. Add your own water & can.
Then stare and watch it brewing, mistakenly thinking you’re improving the quality of beer brewing worldwide.
Hah. Hah. Yeah yeah, I’m a geek.
hi! seems like a common problem on the gentoo forums but even searching through the old posts at the gentoo forum i haven’t been able to find a solution to this problem:
eth0 does not exist
now i’m using the integrated Marvell Yukon Gigabit nic integrated into my asus k8vsedx and there are 2 options when compiling the kernel under networking support -> ethernet (1000mb). one is deprecated and one is experimental. i’ve tried marking both with a “*” and neither of them have worked…
i’m using the instructions for recompiling and installing the kernel found here. i’m manually confguring so section 7.c is what im using .
edit: i’ve also downloaded a bz2 file from syskonnect.com for the nic but i don’t know exactly where to extract it. i know i’d have to modularize it in menuconfig and probably add it to the /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.12-gentoo-r4 file right?
Er, I have no idea why you think I could help. :)
