So I just installed Fedora Core 6 on my PC and my onboard network card isn't workin.
It is a Realtek 8168, and so I found an rpm for this on freshrpms.net: http://zod.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=738
Now I installed the RPM without any errors, and I can see that it is installed in the RPM list. Then I rebooted just to make sure that it was loaded into the kernel before I tried to install the network card again.
But when I try to choose my network card during the wizard, Configure Network Adapter, it isn't showing up on the list.
Did I forget to do something?
I tried modprobe r1000 and r8168 and they both showed an error:
"FATAL: Module rxxx not present"
All help is greatly appreciated,
