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
* 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 -
Dec 1 11:01:55 sirrah dhcpcd: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP
Dec 1 11:01:55 sirrah cron: (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): session opened for user
root by (uid=0)
The cause of the trouble seems to be pointed out by the line
"dhcpcd: 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?
