Subject: [gentoo-user] mobo replaced; eth0 fails
Date: Fri, 11 Nov 2011 20:30:12
1 My dell laptop E6510 had its motherboard replaced (as it turned out, for
2 no good reason) and now the wired ethernet fails.
4 ajglap gottlieb # /etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart
5 * Bringing up interface eth0
6 * ERROR: interface eth0 does not exist
7 * Ensure that you have loaded the correct kernel module for your hardware
8 * ERROR: net.eth0 failed to start
10 I am hoping it is some wrong setting in the bios, but the only one I see
11 says the ethernet can be disabled enabled enabled (with pxe)
13 I tried both of the enabled variants with the same outcome.
15 I don't think I changed the kernel during that time, but I did try two
16 older kernels; again with no change. I believe I have the correct
17 driver built into the kernel
19 ajglap gottlieb # lspci -v
