NIC driver installation issue due to change in kernel..
I am facing a problem that after upgrading RAM from 2 GB to $ GB in my ASUS-P5KPL AM-PS board with Realtek r8168 driver that was previously labled
as r8168.ko, but now as I reinstall Redhat Linux 5.1 (same as before),
but the kernel is looked now like 2.6.18-53.el5.PAE insted of 2.6.18-53.el5. (What is this PAE.???)
and now as I am going to install the LAN driver same r8168.ko file on the same path as before /lib/modules/2.6.../.../net directory using the
insmod command. it throws an error that "Invalid module format.."
so tell me please How can I get .c source file of the LAN driver and how can i compile it again to
.ko file to make it working again with this PAE kernel..??
