and now you need to re-emerge baselayout since the scripts do not work correctly anymore. I had done the same so I could get my network up and search on bugzilla and this list for a known cause. That worked but then net.lo wants to use dhcp... re-emerging baselayout fixed it. (or if you didn't forget to backup the scripts you edited, revert to those backups) Rudmer -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
