Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

from the driver file rlt8139.c and everything else seems to be fine, but gcc gives me the following line and stops:
rtl8139.c:1511: pcmcia/driver_ops.h: No such file or directory.
In the driver source file I can find the lines
which must be the reason for this. The file /driver_ops-h didn't come with the driver floppy, but I found a file installed in my computer in /usr/src/linux/pcmcia-cs-3.0.8/include/pcmcia/driver-ops.h.
I tried copying this file to all the places I could think of hoping gcc would work, but with no success. Now I'm stuck!
Am I missing a file or do I need to change something in the existing file or is there another way of doing this? In the driver floppy there is also a Makefile, but I have absolutely no idea of the make approach, so I feel more comfortable with a 'simple' command like gcc. And wouldn't the same problem with the missing file arise with the makefile, too?
If anybody knows what to do, I would be immensly grateful for some help!
If you do, try moving the whole directory (pcmcia) into there. So you would have /usr/src/linux/include/pcmcia/driver-ops.h as I have a feeling this is where it is looking. If it doesn't work, edit the source file to use " insted of < and > (as that tells the compiler to look locally for the file and not in the global includes).
I think I already tried moving the directory, but will check that one anyway. I'll try the other one, too, and if it doesn't work I'll be back to you in a couple of days (that's how long it usually takes to try everything out...slow but interesting)!
