Here is my problem. I was setting up my Gentoo install on my laptop at work. While I’m in the middle of compiling my kernel it turns 5 o’clock. I grabbed the old laptop and went out the door. Homeward bound.
When I got home, I plugged my laptop into my network. No internet… “bummer” I think to myself after hours of compiling (not the first time, but hey it is my first gentoo install). The compile needed that connection… why oh why did I not just do a “fechonly”
I think that if I had, than my life would not totally stuck, i mean suck… I digress.
I read about commands in Linux to renew the DHCP
, but I do not have the luxury of a fully operational operation system. dhclient and other basic commands do not work. I tried to chroot back to the liveCD, but…well lets just leave it at I could not do it.
Could someone tell me how to get my connection to the internet up and running again? rebooting will not do it... i think.
