Problem With Linksys EG1032 V2


I am trying to install a Linksys EG1032 V2 on Slackware 12, I am going through what the installation on The Readme File says to do
This is the Readme File

1 Overview

The sk98lin driver installation script supports the Marvell Yukon
chipset based product, SysKonnect SK-98xx
and SK-95xx family on Linux 2.4.13 and abowe. It has been tested with Linux
on Intel/x86 machines.

2 Required Files

The linux kernel source available in directory (/usr/src/linux)
Compiler tools (eg. gcc, make etc.)

3 Installation notes

This script will automatically compile and load the sk98lin driver on your
host system. Before performing both compilation and loading, it is necessary
to shutdown any device using the sk98lin kernel module and to unload the
old sk98lin kernel module. This script will do this automatically per
default. If you want to shutdown and unload the old sk98lin kernel module
manually, run the script in the EXPERT mode.

Please plug a card into your machine. Without a card we aren't able to check
the full driver functionality.

Be shure to use the same kernel source and kernel version. For instance,
it might be, that you run kernel version 2.4.20, but the header files the
kernel module will be compiled with refer to kernel version 2.4.21. If you
don't have the same kernel version, please install the sources and compile
a new kernel. It's not possible to mix different kernel versions!

4 Driver Installation

To install the newest linux driver, proceed as follows:

1. Login as 'root'.
2. Unpack the driver installation package using the command

# tar xfvj install-???.tar.bz2
or
# bunzip2 -c install-???.tar.bz2 | tar xfv -

3. To start the driver build process, go to the directory DriverInstall
and start the build process with the following command:

# cd DriverInstall
# ./install.sh

4. Choose your favorite installation method.
5. The driver will be compiled and installed

5 Manual module loading

To load the module manually, proceed as follows:

1. Enter "modprobe sk98lin".
2. If any Marvell Yukon based adapter is installed in your computer
and you have a /proc file system, execute the command:
# ls /proc/net/sk98lin/
This should produce an output containing a line with the following
format:
eth0 eth1 ...
which indicates that your adapter has been found and initialized.

NOTE: For further informations take a look in the sk98lin.txt file

6 Unloading the module

To stop and unload the driver modules, proceed as follows:

1. Execute the command "ifconfig YOUR_DEVICE down".
# ifconfig eth0 down
# ifconfig eth1 down
2. Execute the command "rmmod sk98lin".

7 Driver Parameters

When loading the driver as a kernel module, additional parameters
can be passed to the driver for configuration.

Those parameters can be passed in two ways:

a) You can either state them on the modprobe command line
b) You can set them in the file /etc/modules.conf (or old name:
/etc/conf.modules), in order to force the kernel module loader
to pass them to the driver at load-time.

NOTE: For further informations about the parameters and their
possible values take a look in the sk98lin.txt file


this is what I try to do

#./install.sh
Installation script for sk98lin driver.
Version 1.03 (20030319)
(C)Copyright 1999-2003 Marvell(R)
====================================================
Add to your trouble-report the logfile install.log
which is located in the DriverInstall Directory
====================================================

1) user
2) expert
Choose your favorite installation method: user

Check user id (0) passed
Check host type (done) passed
Check compiler (/usr/bin/gcc) passed
Check module support (/sbin/insmod) passed
Check make (/usr/bin/make) passed
Check archive file (sk98lin) passed
Check kernel version (2.6.21.5-smp) failed
Kernel version unsupported.
This driver was developed for the kernel family 2.4.x
higher then 2.4.13. If you are still using a old version
of the kernel, please update to the newest version from
ftp://ftp.kernel.org
Instalation of sk98lin driver module failed.


I don't see why it would ask me to update the kernel if the kernel is new? and I cannot do anything more after that.
thank you for taking the time to look at my post

Hi,

The '/lib/modules/2.6.21.5-smp/kernel/drivers/net/sk98lin/' is available for Slackware 12.0.

BTW, put the long listings in the vbcode tags, either Quote or code at the top of the reply window.
