3c2000 installation on mandrake 9.1


I m trying to install the driver of my ASUS 3c2000 lan card on mandrake 9.1. I read the readme file included with the driver and it is said I might need to change version.h and autoconf.h with the files from /boot/linuz... etc...but the files don't exist.

Moreover when I try to load the driver I get many messages of errors about unresolved symbols and I don't have a clue what it's all about !

Is it a problem with mandrake ? The ethernet card is the only thing it hasn't recognize instantanently...

If anybody's had the same problem with mandrake, could he explain me how he dealt with that ?

Thanks

Unhappy I got problem too

Ok i'm kinda new to linux and akk this stuff and have spent about 3hrs trying to get this network card working......

I've got an Asus board with an intergrated Gigabit LAN 3c2000 which is not being picked up by mandrake 9.1

Ok here's what i've done so far:
Downloaded the zip file with the driver source code from Asus and tried to compile it and no matter what i do i just get errors

i did what the readme said and did make load and i get an error on the first line " /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h:1:28: linux/rhconfig.h: No such file or directory"
I've checked and the file is there, so i've got no idea what to do about it, here is the rest of what happens when i type make load:

********

tammacfrench about that version.h autoconf.h bit is only for people using SuSE as it says in the readme :

********
Note: on SuSE systems since 7.1, you will have to execute the
following commands before running make:

cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h
cp /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux/autoconf.h

For more details se http://sdb.suse.de/en/sdb/html/mwalter_kernel_24.html
*********

but you do have the directory /usr/src/linux/ i hope. From what i've read this is where the source code for the kernel is kept i think, and is needed to compile the source code given for the NIC driver on the asus website

hope this helps in some way

Well...I've done a lot to solve my problem and a couple of times I did succeed in installing what seemed to be something working properly...But every new boot removed everything so ...

But about the message: cannot find resolv.h, I changed the path directly in the file...but I still had a problem with the insmod...which worked whenever it wanted to...

Acually, I have solved the problem by changing my ethernet card ...One that is automaticaly recognized by Mandrake...

Good luck
