Installing marvell yukon n/card fedora 4


Hey there!

I am currently installing a network card(Marvell Yukon 88E8050) on a Fedora 4 platform. I have a driver for the card, it came on the Intel motherboard disk, however i am not sure that it is the right driver(sk98lin).

Can someone tell me if it is the right driver or not?

Okay, say that it is the right driver. I carry on with the install but get halted by the following error message :

Check Kernel header files(not found) [FAILED]
Kernel header not found. Please install the linux header files
development package or crate a symbolic link from
/usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION directory to linux
eg: ln -s /usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION/usr/src/linux

Installation of sk98lin driver module failed.

I tried creating the symbolic link but it proved unsuccessful.

Please can someone advise me on what to do ! It would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Wazza

FC4 does not ship with the source. You must install this yourself.
See www.mjmwired.net for this and many more really useful tips.

The kernel headers are included in the 'kernel-devel' RPM. This can be installed from the FC CD's (or DVD), through YUM, or from online FTP.

[mirandam@charon ~]$ rpm -q kernel-devel
kernel-devel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4

mjmwired: should have known you'd be a member - hope you don't mind me sending everyone with fedora to you?

This was nice to know (kernel source headers) - Last time I missed these I had to install the entire source.

still no success

Hi there,

I had the same error message and I tried installing kernel-devel from the fourth cd. It seemed to go well as I received the same message.

Then, as I try to install the network card I still get the same error.

Please help. I am new to Linux. Is there somewhere else where I can read in detail about installing network cards? Is there a GUI in Gnome or KDE can help install the NIC drivers.

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Itso
