Failed to bring eth0 up
 
I just did a clean installed of Gentoo and I have no net access (However, I did have net access while using the LiveCD). During bootup I see this error:

Using /etc/modules/autoload.d/kernel-2.4 as config
loading module eepro100
failed to load eepro100

then right before the login prompt it says:

Failed to bring eth0 up
Error: Problem starting needed services.
"netmount" was not started.

I have an MSI 845E with onboard LAN, Intel 82562ET epro100. (side comment: why is the intel driver epro100, yet it's eepro100 in the modules directory?)

My /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.4 file has one uncommented line which reads:

eepro100

My /etc/conf.d/net file has one uncommented line which reads:

iface_eth0="dhcp"

When I run lsmod I get no mention of my ethernet adapter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Try booting on the liveCD and if started, type lsmod to see what modules is beeing loaded by the life CD to support your networkcard. Then if you have the name try to boot normally, login en try to load the same module manually and check if the etherdevice came up or not by typing ifconfig


Hope this helps,
