So, I now have a basic working Funtoo installation, as detailed from this post:
However, I am stalled on static IP configuration, and have no internet connection. All of our machines here at work have static IP addresses, whether desktop or server. Ugh.
I have configured (or so I think) via instructions for "Server Network Configuration":
# cd /etc/init.d # ln -s netif.tmpl netif.eth0
Using nano, I created /etc/conf.d/netif.eth0 configuration file with this info:
# rc-update add netif.eth0 default
Also rebooted. During boot, it indicated that eth0 was up, but "RTNETLINK answers: Network is unreachable." Other than not having my netmask info, this is the same static IP info I usually use for this machine. What am I doing wrong here?
