Driver Problems!

Hi there! I have a problem with my Marvell Yukon network card. I have to install a driver, but when I do it, the installation script tells me that there is a mismatch error and that I need gcc 3.3.5 and I have gcc 4.1. I tried installing gcc 3.3.5 but instalation fails, so I supose I need to uninstall gcc 4.1 before doing it. Can anybody tell me how to uninstall it?? Please. Thanks!

Hi, just guessing here, i remember when i used to run fedora first versions there was an issue installing nvidia drivers, you had to export gcc, so why not give it a try, maybe it will work. Check what versions you have installed: ls /usr/bin/gcc* and then just before trying to install your driver type: export CC=gcc-3.3.5 or whatever version you need. Check for typos, don't miss any "-" or "." or it won't work. Good luck

What model Marvell Yukon nic card do you have?
I know there are two kernel drivers that are for Marvell Yukon nic cards, there under 1000mbit section. I think that's in kernel 2.6.x only though.

Simply run #modprobe sk98lin to start manually.
For automatic loading add these lines in /etc/rc.modules.

Thanks to everyone!! Alien...
If I add that line to that file. Do I have to locate sk98lin in any directory in particular??

No , just add this:
/sbin/modprobe sk98lin
It will be located automatically from /lib/modules/kernel-version.


execute, line, linux, locate
