Ubuntu is an ancient african word, which means : "I'm sick of compiling Gentoo all the time" -- Jeff Waugh

hi! seems like a common problem on the gentoo forums but even searching through the old posts at the gentoo forum i haven’t been able to find a solution to this problem:

Code:

eth0 does not exist

now i’m using the integrated Marvell Yukon Gigabit nic integrated into my asus k8vsedx and there are 2 options when compiling the kernel under networking support -> ethernet (1000mb). one is deprecated and one is experimental. i’ve tried marking both with a “*” and neither of them have worked…

i’m using the instructions for recompiling and installing the kernel found here. i’m manually confguring so section 7.c is what im using .

any advice?

edit: i’ve also downloaded a bz2 file from syskonnect.com for the nic but i don’t know exactly where to extract it. i know i’d have to modularize it in menuconfig and probably add it to the /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.12-gentoo-r4 file right?
