Question No network interfaces after kernel compilation.


Hi all,

I'm trying to generate a minimalist kernel for a netbook : an Archos 10.

I've started from a blank kernel (make allnoconfig) release 2.6.29-1 on a gentoo distro.

I've activate each module necessary : the kernel booting, the distro start but the problem is that ifconfig -a command just return the loopback interface. Though, I've activate all rt2500 (pci and usb) modules, rt73 modules, and all RTL8139 and RTL8169 modules.

Surely I have forgotten I kernel option but I don't see which one.

This is my .config : http://www.2shared.com/file/5371825/...ee/config.html

And hardware detected :

Code:

Somewhere under the Networking options you probably forgot to activate it.

Networking options --->[*] TCP/IP networking ]
