Yet More Help needed


I am Brand spanking new to linux. I am tring to use the Makefile to install my D-link ethernet card. I open up termainal (please excuse spelling mistakes) Then type make -f Makefile (I am currently in the directory where Makefile is ) Then I get an error 1. I don't know what the error is and don't know how to fix it. I did try make -f Makefile -i then it stoped after the ojbdump and created a .lst file I can not find the .o file needed on my system and it all so seems that the makefiles directorys are wrong. I corrected the directorys and tried to install it again. I still got the same error.

What am I doing wrong? What is error 1? Is there a make file for Mandrake?


I have been working for days on this .... Maybe, I should just go back to windows . I am just sick of it.

not sure how to find that

how do I find the verison of the kernel? I tried ver but, that does not work. Is that what you mean by distribution? If not it is Mandrake.

Well, if your makefile is just named 'makefile', you can simply type 'make' (-f tells it to use a specific file, defaults are makefile or Makefile). If you can't find what's wrong, post the file (using [ CODE ] tag, to keep formatting.).

you have downloaded a tar version of the file which means you have to compile the drivers into your kernel. If possible see if the website has a src rpm file which will be easier for you to install. The cmd to use when you download the rpm file is: rpm -Uvh blah.blah.rpm.

If there is no rpm file then try to copy the mesg and post it for us to have a look at it.

The file I do not think is compressed. The file name is RTL81039.c (or something close to that) I can open it and view it with no problems. I am missing the rtl81039.o verison of it which is an object file from what I understand. I don't know I am going to have to go to the local libary and post the code and what I have done I am pretty sure they will let me do that.... I am assuming that I should create the file with a .txt ext so windows will reconize it so I can post it.

I like how supportive everyone has been now all I have to do is get this computer up and running.
