better link

Kuma

ignoring the fact you are on older Mandriva, here is a link to I think, the solution

http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_RTL8168

the main diff as I casually read this, with some aussie beer, is your /etc/modprobe.preload is what I suggest you load the newly created module into.

You could also insert it into the /etc/rc.local script but you would have there
modprobe r1000
whereas in preload its just
r1000
because the file knows you are talking modules.


good luck and I had to edit the r1000 bit

hello aus9
I have update my FC5 kernel to 2.6.16...
and resolve the two question above,But I met an other question:
when I follow the r1000 "readme.txt" after I finish these:
make clean modules (as root or with sudo)
make install
depmod -a

I take the next step:
#insmod ./src/r1000.ko speed=100 duplex=0 autoneg=0
and it note me there is 1 error that r1000.ko...-1,I forgot the clear discription.
Coulde u tell me why?



thanks advance!!!

just to refresh

it is better to use the mobprobe command rather than insmode so redo pls

2) if compiling fails I am no help as I do not (repeat) have this device I have r8169.

therefore you need to be friends with persons of higher quality, (not me).

but you may want to look to see if your distro has got all the appropiate software installed for compiling....such as gcc binutils etc

your documentation will hopefully tell you ....for your distro want are the dependencies.

searching www.rpmfind.net can give U clues such as for FC

Looking back to this topic finally, Thanks for the replies.

Anyway in the past 3 months I've reformatted the harddrive and haven't used any distro lately. However seeing the new replies I think I can freely start again. However I can't install it on my current harddrive now, I have no room left to do so.
I'm going to be purchasing a new one and starting from there. Will be checking back in a few weeks once I have it.

Thanks again.

Hello Kuma . I have made the RTL8168 work

some week ago, we meet the same errors.because the FC5's kernel.
To deal with the errors,I updata the kernel to kernel_2.6.16 and resovle all this errors.
After you have updata your kernel you can follow the r1000's READERME.txt and install the derivers.But at last step you must use the 2. Force the link status by using ethtool.

good luck to you!
and thanks aus9 very much!!!
