Sub_title: Using Puppy 3.01 with Kernel 2.6.1.18
 

Hello all,

I have MB with dual Realtek 8110SC LAN adapter and unfortunatelly it is not detected by Puppy.

I read the "RTL8168/8111 on Puppy 2.13 Not recognised" post and I found a Linux driver for 2.6.x kernel on the Realtek web page but I do not know how to compile the driver, install the "dotpup" and import the driver in to Puppy.

Can somebody be so kind and write a step by step manual for absolute Linux newbie, PLEASE?!

Thanks!

Hi,

I made some progress. I tried to compile Linux driver downloaded from Realtek website but unfortunately the command "make clean modules" failed. Here is the output:

# cd r8169-6.005.00
# ls
Makefile readme release_note.txt src
# make clean modules
make -C src/ clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/sdc1/r8169-6.005.00/src'
rm -rf *.o *.ko *~ core* .dep* .*.d .*.cmd *.mod.c *.a *.s .*.flags .tmp_versions Module.symvers Modules.symvers rset
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/sdc1/r8169-6.005.00/src'
make -C src/ modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/sdc1/r8169-6.005.00/src'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18.1/build SUBDIRS=/mnt/sdc1/r8169-6.005.00/src modules
make: Entering an unknown directory
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18.1/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: Leaving an unknown directory
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/sdc1/r8169-6.005.00/src'
make: *** [modules] Error 2

I hope that there is somebody experienced who can help me.

I am looking forward for your replies.

Thanks[/code]
