where can I find e1000 driver souce code redhat 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 server ?


Hi All,

Where can I find e1000 driver source code on i386 server having redhat 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 server.

I have checked the /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES it doesn't contain any files ?

Thanks.

/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES is for unpacked (installed)
".src.rpm" packages. The kernel source will be in
/usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.15... , so please install
package 'kernel-devel' (or kernel-source)
e.g. 'kernel-devel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.i686.rpm'
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i686.rpm.html
and find
linux-2.6.15.../drivers/net/e1000/

Regards

To compile a module : Copy the programs.c and the
header(s).h from linux-2.6.xx.../drivers/net/e1000/
to an empty directory in your /home/tanniru/
and use a "4 line" Makefile : = = > examples

( see #4 )
