2 big problems...


these item occur after i boot into my gentoo...

insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r6/kernel/drivers/net/e100/e100.o insmod e100 failed
insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r6/kernel/drivers/net/e100/e100.o init_module: No such device

there are so many items, but they all so similar so i just copy some of them....

wht does they mean ?
and how to solve?

is it mean they cant find my lan card driver?
but i use adsl-start it can connect, but cant emerge....


and why i cant access to my cdrom?

is it need to type the mout command such as

mount /dev/cdrom

am i correct?
but i try this before it said mount: mount point not exist......

THz all guys answering me

CDROM, yep you have to mount it. If this is a fresh install do this:

mkdir /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

The first one makes a directory and you should only have to do that once. After that just do the second one.

You do seem to have a problem with the software/driver for the ethernet card. I don't have one so can't be of much help. Sorry.

Hope you can at least get to your CD now.

You have a /mnt directory already. Do this to see:

cd /

Then do this:

ls <that is a small L>

You should have these

bin
boot
dev
etc
home
lib
mnt
opt
proc
root
sbin
tmp
usr
var

When you type in mkdir /mnt/cdrom it should put the new directory inside the mnt directory above. Linux will not mount to a directory that does not exist. You can type in cd /mnt and then do ls <that is a small L again and short for 'list'> you should see the directories cdrom and floppy if you have one.

If you don't have a /mnt directory I don't think it will even boot at all. It's there.

When you log in as root it puts you in the /root directory listed above. If you log in as a regular user, not root, say like Txlyo the you would be in the directory /home/Txlyo then.

I suspect that you are new to Linux. If so let me know, I will give you some links. Linux is not set up like windoze as far as the directories are concerned. Windoze is register based and Linux is file based. It is about as different as night and day.

Post back with a few questions and let me know if you are new. You may also want to update your profile and put in what country you are from and the distro. You don't have to put the city, just put in what you are comfortable with. I put in my state and country. Nobody will find me.

Later

The insmod errors could be due to a few things. Please post all of the errors and tell us what make and model of network card you have.

the error log is at begining , after finish the booting and checking...

and i found that there is really no /mnt before,
now the /mnt is i create after i see the message above, and there is only cdrom...coz i just created......

but as i remember i hv created at the step in the installation...

i suppose my NIC is e100 becoz it said

insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r6/kernel/drivers/net/e100/e100.o insmod e100 failed

i try to run modprobe e100
but it said device not found and some error on IRQ etc..


maybe i should to try to have my fourth time installation...

Maybe you should consider a more GUI and autodetect oriented distro

We really need to know the make and model of your networkcard (e100 is just the generic module the kernel tries to load) and any related error-messages and log-entries. Otherwise we can't help you (or at least; I can't)

Check with fstab for your cd

/dev/hda1 /boot ext3 noauto,noatime 1 1
/dev/hda3 / reiserfs noatime 0 0
/dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda5 /debian reiserfs noatime 0 0
/dev/hda6 /data reiserfs noatime 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /w2k vfat noauto 0 0
/dev/hdb2 none swap
/dev/hdb5 /data3 reiserfs noatime 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /data2 reiserfs noatime 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0

The last line is the cd /mnt/cdrom is where it is mounted.
Check as root with lspci for your eth card - you'll need to install pciutils for this.
Did you build the kernel with genkernel?

Wouldn't worry about whether the folder exists or not.Just make one.
with that driver thing:
I would build a kernel with the driver included (not as module) the old fashioned way w/o genkernel.Got no idea what genkernel does - I stay away from it.There are two different drivers for that NIC.One is from Intel the other one from some Becker guy.

Advice, genkernel did not work for me. I have read where it did not work for others. Up to you.
