Please help with compiling Realtek8139 NIC driver.....


Hey buds!

I recently tried to throw Gentoo on an old HP I had lying aroung and it did not auto-detect my Realtek8139 ethernet card. So I looked in /lib/modules/linux.2.xxxx/kernel/drivers/net for a driver that I could use to probe for the card, didn't find one for my card. So I got the un-compiled driver (r8139.c) from Realtek's site, but I don't know how to get it to be r8139.o like all the other drivers in that directory. I assume that this involves compiling the r8139.c file??

I realize this is probably a retarded question at this point in the game but can somebody please help me out?

Thanks!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
