Right as a few of you might no im having all end of problems with my network card driver on Redhat 9, so iv gone looking for the latest Linux driver for my card and have come up with this:
Using the Source RPM Package
The updated drivers are best installed by using the source RPM to create a custom binary RPM with kernel modules for your system:
Use the following commands to install and test the driver pack:
# Transfer the Scyld PCI Netdriver package
# Perhaps use ncftpget ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/netd...-3.1-1.src.rpm
rpm -i ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/netd...-3.1-1.src.rpm
# Build the binary version for your kernel
rpm -bb SPECS/netdriver*.spec
# Now install it your newly built package.
rpm -i --force RPMS/i386/netdrivers-3.1-1.i386.rpm
The --force option is needed because the new drivers may conflict with the existing drivers installed by the kernel package. If this occurs you will see a warning message for each driver that has been updated.
Untill my network card is installed i dont have the net, so how do i run this thing?
