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

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
Code:
grep -i skge config-file
grep -i sk98lin config-file
As bulliver said, you might be up for a kernel compile depending on the results.

This is what's confusing me...I thought that canned kernels distributed by your distro always had _all_ drivers built as modules, and used hardware detection to decide which ones to load up...

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
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec

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?
