Compiling Driver for R8101 Realtek Network Card (Debian)
Alright so I have one of those dreaded motherboards where it loads the 8139 driver instead of the correct 8101 (which isn't included in the distro).
So, I downloaded the drivers, and tried to follow the instructions. I am getting this on the first step:
VoiceRecorder:/usr/src/r8101-1.010.00# make install
make -C src/ install
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/r8101-1.010.00/src'
install -m 744 -c r8101.ko /lib/modules/126.96.36.199/kernel/drivers/net/
install: cannot stat `r8101.ko': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/r8101-1.010.00/src'
make: *** [install] Error 2
From what I can tell i'm either missing a module, or something else somewhere to do with the compiler, or i'm doing something completely wrong (as this is only day 3 dealing with Linux).
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
I am running Debian from a Netinst CD and have just upgraded to kernel version 188.8.131.52
Thanks in advance;
Well...I found out how to solve this by accident. You have to type 'Make' first, before make install.
Wow. Really simple. Suppose I wont forget that.
