I am still working hard at this; I even have burnt a new CD and reinstalled from it, but there is nothing doing. To state my problem again, it occurs on an G4 iMac with the Gentoo universal ppc-install-2005.1 disc. At the end of the boot process, just before the login, I get this: ========================================================================== * Starting syslog-ng ... [ ok ] * Starting gpm ... [ ok ] * Starting eth0 * Bringing up eth0 * Configuration not set for eth0 - assuming dhcp * dhcp * Running dhcpcd ... [ !! ] * Starting vixie-cron ... [ ok ] * Starting local ... [ ok ] * ERROR: Problem starting needed services. * "netmount" was not started. ========================================================================== And the corresponding bit in /var/log/messsages is: ========================================================================== Dec 1 11:00:55 sirrah rc-scripts: Configuration not set for eth0 - assuming dhcp Dec 1 11:01:55 sirrah dhcpcd[4718]: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP server response Dec 1 11:01:55 sirrah cron[5378]: (CRON) STARTUP (V5.0) Dec 1 11:01:56 sirrah rc-scripts: ERROR: Problem starting needed services. Dec 1 11:01:56 sirrah rc-scripts: "netmount" was not started. Dec 1 11:02:50 sirrah login(pam_unix)[5457]: session opened for user root by (uid=0) ========================================================================== The cause of the trouble seems to be pointed out by the line "dhcpcd[4718]: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP server response" (and there is indeed quite a delay at the stage "Running dhcpcd"). But now what can I do to get this "valid DHCP server response"? There seems to be nothing about dhcp in the .config file: what then? does it suppose that I am already connected to the Net?
