since installing gentoo(I'm a complete linux newbie)i keep
getting messages at boot time,after switching to runlevel 3,
that no dhcp client is installed and that netmount was not started.After i have logged in i can do a #dhcpcd eth0, and
that gives me an ip address.I would have been happy enough at that but recently my internet connectivity stops and starts
randomly after an #dhcpcd eth0.I'm plugged into a router and the router(belkin wireless G plus MIMO)is plugged into my cable modem(motorola surfboard).I have a sym-link from net.eth0 that points to net.lo.Also i have the appropriate lines in /etc/conf.d/net....to tell the system to use dhcp
to bring up my interface.does anyone have a clue about what these problems could be and how to fix them.Thankx in advance
Thankx for all your help and ideas.Err...i know this may sound like a dumb question but how do you attach files to posts!!.Also i think the fact that i'm getting kicked offline every so often has to do with there being five other guys who are connecting to my router wirelessly.This is where the problem of getting kicked offline every so often is i'd bet.Having said that i still could use your help in understanding what's going wrong at boot time(system reports "no dhcp client installed" and netmount not started).I can't send net.eth0 and net.lo in code blocks coz ther's a limit on how many characters you can post!.
my conf.d/net is now empty...and i'm still getting the same errors.I reconfigured my router to accept more connections but i'm still getting kicked offline every so often.hmmm.err how do i un-include net.lo. Complich8 said if i didn't modify it then there's no reason to include it.Thankx for keeping up with this post guys.
