Realtek 8139


Ok, ive gotten and compiled 8139too.c, followed directions (and learning alot in the process), the one from Realtek.com and otherwise, and the rtl8139.c. Put 8139too.o and rtl8139.o in the net directory (where they are supposed to go). Im using RedHat 7.2 and running KDE (cuz it looks cooler than GNOME), and when i do Network configuration, and try to add hardware, it wont initialize the realtek! Nor can it see the new ones ive added! I've tried everything i can manage and still it wont initialize. Any suggestions (as i am a linux complete newbie) or snide comments are helpful/deserved. I even tried making it from a Makefile on realtek.com. Ive worked on this problem for at least a week! PLEASE help!

"KDE (cuz it looks cooler than GNOME)" utter rubbish, i'm afraid. KDE is just the most windows-by-number desktop availiable. use blackbox.

well what errors are you actually getting? check dmesg or such for useful error messages. you shouldn't need to download any drivers the 8139too driver (which is better than rtl8139) is included in the kernel. how is it set up in /etc/modules.conf?

thanks for the advice, im actually having a different problem now

i switched to Mandrake 8.1 in hopes of it working. What ended up happening is (what i suspiciouslly believe) to be exactly what was happening earlier. I haven't been able to succesfully ping anything except myself. Ive reinstalled so many times, then i figured out netconfig Now sometimes if the eth is actually working (but not on the net), the comp is slowed down 3x. Ill try blackbox...but yeah KDE is the most windows thing, its what im used to

My ultimate goal is to host a mud and its website off linux. I just need to get on the net!!!
