Hello

I have LFS 6.2 and I get error message:

Interface eth0 doesn't exist.


How do I know if udev create the device?

The following code execute from chroot:

# grep -H . /sys/class/net/*/address
/sys/class/net/eth0/address:00:01:53:82:36:10
/sys/class/net/lo/address:00:00:00:00:00:00
/sys/class/net/sit0/address:00:00:00:00

# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/26-network.rules
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="net", SYSFS{address}=="00:01:53:82:36:10",
