Installing alx driver for Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Ethernet Card on RHEL6.5


I am attempting to install the alx driver (http://www.linuxfoundation.org/colla...networking/alx) on my RHEL6 system and the details of that system follow:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Nov 10 22:19:54 EST 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost ~]# lspci -nn | grep Ethernet
03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet [1969:1091] (rev 08)
However, upon attempting to run make, the following error(s) arise for which I am requesting your assistance in resolving:

Code:

After reviewing the 3,435,346,456 websites/forums regarding this issue, I appear to be at an impasse. Any assistance would truly be greatly appreciated.

Download and Install this: http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el6/x...epo.x86_64.rpm

Then, do this:

[root@localhost alpo]# cat > /etc/sysconfig/network << "EOF"
> NETWORKING=yes
> EOF
[root@localhost alpo]# reboot

Problem solved.
