How to configure/install Realtek RTL8139/810x under SUSE Enterprise server v.10


Hi!

I'm new to SUSE Enterprise server (v.10). Just recently I've performed standard installation of the system on AMILO Pi 2550 and when it came to configure network card (via YaST) there is no driver for Realtek RTL8139/810x NIC in the list. There was only RTL8129/8139 listed from all Realtek family, but this doesn't work. As I'm new to SUSE server (first time using server edition too) I've no clue how to fix this problem.

Can anyone help me finding driver and configuring this card?

Thank you in advice for your help!

realtek8139 is a pretty old nic. I DO know that driver for this nic was in the vanilla kernel since at least 2002.
show us:

uname -a
lspci -k
ip link
dmegs|grep eth

As I can see you have not 8139 but 8136.
But here http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/red...r-rtl8139.html people say the same thing. Thay have 8139 but lspci shows 8136. This is strange for me.
Fortunately explanation is also there. To make your nic running you need to update your 2.6.16.21-0.8-smp kernel at least to 2.6.18-5.
I believe this help.
