[FC9]Unknown ethernet adapter (Marvell) / driver issue


Laptop: Toshiba Satellite P300
Fedora Core 9.
Ethernet controller: Marvell Yukon 88E8040T

I've been trying to wrap my mind around this for a while. But my limited linux experience seems to be getting in the way.

Lspci brings up:
Code:

Google searching around it appears this card should be controlled by the already installed SysKonnect SK98.xx driver, but that doesn't seem to be working.

After some more searching around I found a "solution" posted on a different forum. The user had a problem with a different card, but apparently used the same driver. So I figured I would give it a shot.

The solution suggested:

Download Center
Installation of the sk98lin driver on your Linux system
The prerequisites for compilation, loading and patch creation of the
sk98lin driver are:

- Any device using the sk98lin kernel module needs to be closed.

- The old sk98lin kernel module needs to be unloaded.
Per default the installation script will do this automatically
(if "installation" mode is selected).
then a command line gui thats in the linux system
In Fedora 8 cd into /usr/src/kernels/kernel version
execute as [root@xxx ~]# make gconfig in the kernels dir ( uname -r
2.6.23.14-107.fc is mine Like so
[root@mail ~]# cd /usr/src/kernels/2.6.23.14-107.fc8-i686
[root@mail 2.6.23.14-107.fc8-i686]# make gconfig
a gui screen comes up then follow the directions below i had to dig a little
So following suit I did:
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/src/kernels/2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64
bash: cd: /usr/src/kernels/2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64: No such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/src/kernels
bash: cd: /usr/src/kernels: No such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/src
[root@localhost src]# ls
[root@localhost src]#
Apparently I don't even have a folder called kernels in the directory /usr/src. Now I'm lost. Any help would be awesome.

kernel source/kernel headers

i'm no expert on compiling either but I think you need the source or header files for your kernel. the kernel source is the more complete way to go. you need it to compile kernel driver modules.
