DHCP, Network configuration on LFS
After developing my LFS (6.4), I am leaning towards BLFS (SVN).
I first wanted to configure my DHCP as described here: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...et/dhcpcd.html
But I have warnings at boot:
I have on my machine two network cards, a WLAN and LAN:
eth1, Network controller : Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG ...
eth0, Ethernet controller: Broadcom ...
My machine is connected to my wireless modem so it will normally work at least for eth1, isn't it ?!
Here are the contents of my file /etc/dhcpcd/dhcpcd.conf
02:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
02:0e.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)
The ifconfig command is not found.
Any input will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
Edit: I recompiled the kernel with including the drivers for my Broadcom and Intel cards.
Now in the boot it shows:
For testing the interface eth0, I just connected the modem to my PC by ethernet and it works well; when I ping google for example it works, but the ifconfig command is not recognized !
For the interface eth1 (wifi) I really do not see why it doesn't work :/ is there something else to install or configure for the wifi to work ?
I have this errors in the boot kernel log:

My firmware is in /lib/firmware/
I resolved the problem by compiling the driver of this Network Connection as module (m) not in the kernel (y).
