ASUS P5Q PRO : configuration of Ethernet card

I use an ethernet card integrated of the ASUS P5Q PRO mother board.
To identify my ethernet card, I did :

lspci | grep Ethernet
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller (rev b0)

In my kernel, I check the following :

[*] Network device support  --->
[*]   Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)  --->    Atheros L2 Fast Ethernet support
[*]   Ethernet (1000 Mbit)  --->    Atheros L1E Gigabit Ethernet support (EXPERIMENTAL)
[*]   Ethernet (10000 Mbit)  --->

After that, I modify the following in my configuration :

  • hostname
vi /etc/conf.d/hostname

  • Configuration of eth0 (DHCP)

touch /etc/conf.d/net.eth0
vi  /etc/conf.d/net.eth0

config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
dhcp_eth0="nodns nontp nonis"

cd /etc/init.d/
ln -sfn net.lo net.eth0
rc-update add net.eth0 default

  • DHCP
emerge dhcpcd

My configuration !

Hi all,

I decided to put articles on my Gentoo configuration ! I wish it will help you and I wish you will post comments about better configuration.

Gentoo on VirtualBox

To install Gentoo on VirtualBox, there is a good tutorial :

Some notes :

- Ethernet card :

Be sure to choose the same card for your kernel and your VirtualBox.(Me I didn't choose to make the install with Genkernel)

- Partition /boot :

Don't put ext2 in the /etc/fstab file.It's better to put ext3 else if you should have problems by executing mount /boot/.Me I had the following error : unknow filesystem ext2.

* Log in as root
* Make sure /etc/fstab has /dev/hda10 mounted to /test as ext2, read write
* umount /dev/hda10
o If you can't unmount it, then remount it read only (mount -o remount,rw /dev/hda10)
* tune2fs -j /dev/hda10
* Edit /etc/fstab, and for /dev/hda10, change ext2 to ext3
* mount /dev/hda10
* /sbin/shutdown -h now
* mount | grep /dev/hda10
o If it's not shown as ext3, reboot, if still not, troubleshoot
o Otherwise, you're done.

The more simple is that you choose directly ext3 :

/dev/sda1   /boot        ext3    defaults,noatime     1 2
/dev/sda2   none         swap    sw                   0 0
/dev/sda3   /            ext3    noatime              0 1
Notes : TODO ext4
