Linux from Scratch – Network

This time around the compilation and installation of the LFS procieded almost without a scratch. Perhaps that is because I used this time the stable description.
I had a problem with the network configuration. The system is on a network with DHCP so I thought I could skip the whole network configuration. Doesn’t work. That mistake I realised when wanted to ping the router. So back to the configuration. In the udev rules I decided to work with the bus. But it didn’t work out as I thought. After checking (with lspci) I figured I used the wrong ID.
But the network interface just wouldn’t work. So the problem must lie within the kernel or its lack of support for the correct networking device. Recompiled, rebooted and reconected.
It works.
