Rtl 8168b/8111


Wanted to try out FC6 since I've been away from Linux in about three years. I've just bought a new pc with the networkcard builtin.

First problem was that there were no support for my networkcard. I check Realtek homepage i found a nice driver supporting 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels.

The readmefile was nice and everything, but then the problems started.

I ran(as root);

make clean modules

and it ended up like this:

make -C src/ clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/r1000_v1.04/src'
rm -f *.o *.ko *~ core* .dep* .*.d .*.cmd *.mod.c *.a *.s .*.flags
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/r1000_v1.04/src'
[root@localhost r1000_v1.04]# make clean modules
make -C src/ clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/r1000_v1.04/src'
rm -f *.o *.ko *~ core* .dep* .*.d .*.cmd *.mod.c *.a *.s .*.flags
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/r1000_v1.04/src'
make -C src/ modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/r1000_v1.04/src'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build
SUBDIRS=/root/r1000_v1.04/src modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-x86_64'

make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/r1000_v1.04/src'
make: *** [modules] Error 2


Tryed googling around for several hours with no answer to the related errormessage.

Also tryed ndiswrapper even this is a cabelnetworkcard, worked fine until i modprobed the ndiswrapper. Got a load of errors and it didn't load.

Tryed asking around, but nothing made more sense or helped me more than I already had known or tried.

Thanks for your help

Hi benji84,

try to replace at MODULE_PARM with MODULE_PARM_DESC at /root/r1000_v1.04/src/r1000_n.c line 51,52,53

Best regards,

Haveaniceday

Edit: Have heard this is a better solution:
