Why, the file is for a 2.4.18 kernel and will not build for a 2.6 kernel.

Besides you can probably just 'modprobe 8139too' and then assign eth(whatever) an address.

u would probably get better results if u didnt just say "do it" what i did with dialup is just leave thje dwnload overnight and it would be done in the morning, and then u could ask the ppl on here how to compile it and change the Makefile urself. Ive had quite a few problems, and all u have to do is ask how to do it urself and u get ppl replying.

hellmet, this driver is already included in 2.6.x kernels. The network card this machine has uses this same driver and I tried ubuntu a couple of weeks ago with no problem. Why do you need this compiled when it is already available with your kernel?

Anyways, it won't compile against a 2.6.16 kernel, presumably because it is for a 2.4.x kernel. If you give some kind of explanation other than "please do it" we might be able to help.

There is no way I would download a file from megauploads.com and build it on my computer. Especially from someone with less than a dozen posts here. But if you could post the patch to 8139too.c I might try building using my own 2.6 src.

No reason to download and build, this is from November 2001, it's a backport from the 2.4.18 kernel source for Red Hat Linux 7.1/2 kernels, from the readme.txt file for the patch;

Quote:
Comments for 8139too.c version 1.0.1
2001/11/21 by ShuChen Shao

1.It is able to support RTL8139C+ PCI ethernet chips in RedHat 7.2 (kernel 2.4.7).
In addition, it is backward compatiable with RedHat 7.1 (kerne 2.4.2).
Support for the RTL8139C+ PCI ethernet chips have been included in the 2.6 kernel series since 2.6.0 was released.
