Question [exherbo]network unreachable


this might just be me taking notes for my own benefit, idk if anyone else will offer any help before i figure this out myself... however, incase i'm wrong about that (probable, since i utterly suck at manual network configuration)...


fresh install of exherbo.
on a lenovo x60t

afaict, i accurately followed the install guide, the systemd guide, and even managed to splice in some relevant bits for x60t gentoo installs (some kernel bits n bobs).

i've still to get around to thoroughly investigating what i might be missing from the kernel... but... pretty sure i installed the eth stuff it needs.

network unreachable it says.
no such device as eth0 it says.
cant even ping 192.168.1.1, let alone any webside url.

:/

i may return with more accurate output and questions later (like where i'd find relevent logs, like the boot logs incase there are any clues there.) must dash, going out for some r&r.


various configs:
Code:
# more /etc/networks 
# /etc/networks
#
# This file describes a number of netname-to-adress
# mappings for the TCP/IP subsytem. It is mostly
# used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
#

loopback        127.0.0.0
link-local      169.254.0.0
Code:
# more /etc/dhcpcd.conf
# A sample configuration for dhcpcd.
# See dhcpcd.conf(5) for details.

# Inform the DHCP server of our hostname for DDNS.
#i have tried this with both the hostname (satiray) and just the default (hostname)
#hostname
satiray

# Use the hardware address of the interface for the Client ID.
#clientid
# or
# Use the same DUID + IAID as set in DHCPv6 for DHCPv4 ClientID as per RFC4361.
duid

# Persist interface configuration when dhcpcd exits.
persistent

# Rapid commit support.
# Safe to enable by default because it requires the equivalent option set
# on the server to actually work.
option rapid_commit

# A list of options to request from the DHCP server.
option domain_name_servers, domain_name, domain_search, host_name
option classless_static_routes
# Most distributions have NTP support.
option ntp_servers
# Respect the network MTU.
# Some interface drivers reset when changing the MTU so disabled by default.
#option interface_mtu

# A ServerID is required by RFC2131.
require dhcp_server_identifier

# A hook script is provided to lookup the hostname if not set by the DHCP
# server, but it should not be run by default.
Code:
# more /etc/conf.d/net 
config_eth0="dhcp"
eth0_dhcpcd="-t 4"

Instead of saying "pretty sure" why not tell us which Ethernet driver it needs (e1000 IIGC) plus 'lsmod' and 'ifconfig' output and your eth0 configuration?..

'spose i should update this thread.

upon startup, i do
Code:
modprobe e1000e
and that gets me online. ~ i'm still to get my head around systemd (if that's what's involved) and/or how to add that to my boot so it's on automatically, n i dont have to manually enable it after every reboot too get online.

alas, if i had remembered too update this thread in a more timely manner i'd have included lots more info on how i came to such a resolution, how i found out what i needed, and so on. i'll try to remember to come back and mark it as solved once i suss how to get it online automatically. the learning continues.

(p.s., loving exherbo. learning more, being empowered more.)
