thernet controller

I am getting a bit mad trying to solve this question. I think it is a kernel issue, not gentoo..

during installer, everything got recogniced ok, but when i finished installing gentoo i coudnt have any net device. Recompiling the kernel allowed me to make the wireless card work, but i didn't have the same luck with eth0.

lspci says about my net card: Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller

I tried to find this card on my kernel .config, witout any luck (can be possible it become unsuported?) i used the .config from the installer, and made it work with kernel 2.6.34 (but not other hardware), and also tried enabling everything that can get close to possible.

I am using now a custom 2.6.36-1.

Any ideas? i am running without more.

Try to enable CONFIG_PHYLIB and CONFIG_MARVELL_PHY. Anyway documentation says it is for the 88E1011S card. try make defconfig instead of make menuconfig and see if the driver appears or use

Trac is not a forum it's a bug ticket system. Further this has absolutely NOTHING to do with MythTV.
