i honestly dont know where im going wrong with this one
and its driving me nuts because i have no NIC so i cant use YUM or up2date
also if im missing something can you send a link or explain how to install what im missing
thanks in advance,
You might be better asking this in the Fedora forum (under Distros).
I'd be of the opinion that the Yukon should be supported natively at 2.6.11
I used to have to load the sk98lin driver for my Yukon, but now it's a kernel option. Even if you have to run it at 10/100 for a while, at least it gets you going. Sorry, but I no longer have any systems at 2.6.11, so I can't check for you when it changed.
This driver is in the kernel source (2.6.13, and maybe before...)
If you have a stock Fedora kernel, just try:
# modprobe skge
well i did what you said modprobe skge also modprobe sk98lin and both came up as not found
not sure where to go from there
Looks like you may have to build yourself a custom kernel...
Else you can install a newer kernel RPM. As I said, it is in the kernel source as of 2.6.13
I am not sure of 2.6.12
Pays never to throw anything out .... :)
Found a couple of old configs on my Gentoo desktop - 2.6.11 has both skge and sk98lin as kernel options.
If you have the config available under FC (dunno, never used it), try the following commands
Are you using the stock fedora kernel Rammstein666?
i have FC4 2.6.11-1.1369 then downloaded the kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.src.rpm
then did a rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.src.rpm
went in 100%
then did a rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch
then moved /kernel-2.6.11 from the /BUILD/ foldier to /usr/src/linux-2.6.11
and made a link from that called linux
am i on the right path or not?
