Yet another Linux N00b here. The basic situation is this:
My friend who has been using Gentoo for about 3 years now got me into Linux. Just bought a Dell C610. He did the stage 1 install for me, and after adding some stuff in that he forgot, it was time for me to take it home. I hooked it up last night, typed 'emerge gnome' and watched it fail right away. It cannot find any of the hosts it needs. I try to ping something to find out it cannot see anything on this internet.
I reboot and notice that when it trys to start eth0, it says this:
'dhcpcd: missing required function interface_is_up'
I have been trying to find a solution for a few hours now, and I probably did find it, I just don't know what I am looking for
I tried doing this:
nano -w /etc/conf.d/net
and then adding:
config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
dhcp_eth0="nodns nontp nonis"
This is probably the wrong direction but any help would be great. Thaks guys.
Edit: I just noticed that lo was another thing that didn't start up. Is that my localhost? That would help explain part of the problem.
Also, when trying to use ifconfig, the command is not found. Even when logged in as root, and even when I type /sbin/if(tab). It's not there.
