Unhappy problems installing rtl8139 module


Help!
I've seen many posts about this problem in various boards but no working answers.
I'm trying to install the SMC ez-card 10/100 fast ethernet. I've successfully downloaded and compiled the source, rtl8139.c, also successfully compiled pci-scan.c. I'm using gcc Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-81. My kernel is 2.4.2-2, my 'uname-n' matches the version in version.h. The problem is many unresolved symbols when trying to do an 'insmod' on either .o file, doesn't matter what order I do it in. Both sources compiled with no errors using the following: gcc -DMODULE -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -I/usr/src/linux/include -include /usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h -c driver.c . Here's the output from insmod:

The kernel is not the stock 7.1 kernel, and I'm pretty sure I've updated gcc. Sorry for the long post, but I tried not to leave anything out. Has anyone successfully installed this driver??? Help! and thanks in advance for any effort put forth.

why have you downloaded the driver? it's included in the 2.4.2-2 kernel's precompiled modules. i'd suggest using the 8139too module instead tho anyway, as it's more upto date and better i think.

Cool

Doh!
Thanks acid kewpie, I was just concentrating on
the precompiled modules listing 'SMC' , didn't think
to look for realtek. eth0 is now configured and working with the realtek built in to 2.4.2-2.
Thanks again!!!!
