Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Problem
Hi everyone, this is my first post in this forum.
Ok, here's the story, I just finished installing this Redhat Enterprise Linux WS (update 3) on my new machine. Strangely enough, during the installation, it didn't ask me for configuring my network settings, which according to Redhat documentions that, my ethernet adapter couldn't be detected. However, I do have a Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Adapter that is integrated on my mobo.
So, after finishing the installtion, I decided to install the driver manually. and I downloaded the driver 'sk98lin' (I think it should be the driver name...), and first I tried 'user mode' in its installation, unfortunately, it didn't work out very well, actually failed at the end. The reason is:
"An error has occurred during the check process...."
"It's not possible to build a standalone sk98lin driver on this host. The kernel don't export a neccesay symbols for the device driver and we aren't able to load the driver."
So, I tried to compile both the driver and the kernel manually, but the thing is, I really couldn't find 'Marvell Yukon/SysKonnect SK-98xx/Sk-95xx Gigabit Ethernet Adapter support' in 'Network Device Support' when I was doing the kernel compilation. However, I did find the folder 'sk98lin' in /usr/src/linux-2.4.xx/drivers/net directory.
Now, I'm totally lost, what should I do next?! I'm sorry for posting such a exhaustedly long thread.... Thank you you guys in advance...
