If detection problems are encountered be sure to read the GRUB2 article in its entirety before asking the Gentoo community for support. This means that when genkernel is used to build the kernel, the system will generally detect all hardware at boot-time, just like the installation CD does.

For instance, to get the SHA checksum:.

It is very important that everyone understands that choices are what makes Gentoo run. With eselect locale listthe available targets are displayed:. This ensures that the network is functioning properly and that the network packets are reaching the net, DNS name resolution is working correctly, etc.

Note If the IP address, broadcast address, netmask and nameservers are known, then skip this subsection and amr64 with Using ifconfig and route. They also could show up in a different order depending on which of the devices are detected by the kernel first during the early boot process. There are many paths to explore It can be used to automatically sync the system clock to UTC time using a time server.
