Question unforseen problem


After successfully installed LFS, I get following errors during the boot process.
"
eth0: unknown interface: No such device [failed]

SIOCADDRT: No such device [failed]

You shoud not be reading this error message. It means that an unforseen error took in place in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S20network ~
"
I have no idea what is worng with this.
Could someone help me out?

it usually means your boot scripts are trying to initialize the network card but the module is not loaded

you need to know the correct module for your card.

dmesg should list the type of card if it's detected. modprobe can be used to load the module

you should have the following in /etc/modules.conf

Code:
alias eth0 module
module would be replaced with the name of the module

you need to run this
Code:
modprobe module

depmod -ae
you need to have module support in the kernel before any of this will work

you can also build a kernel that supports the card without a module
