Re: Lost Network connection after kernel recompile on G4

I have a PowerMac G4 (Gigabit ethernet) 450Mhz dual processor.  It has

Currently I'm still dual booting (MacOSX) using Yaboot 1.3.8.

I recompiled the kernel for SMP support and after a couple of tries the
new kernel compiled and installed successfully.  However, I seem to
have lost network connectivity - I can't ping the Router which is also
the DHCP server.  I haven't found a way to post the output from dmesg
to the Mac side so that I could attach it but I believe the relevant

What kernel version ?

I've recompiled 2.4.18 with SMP support.
