Network card module installation

Hi,

I am using Red Hat 9.0 and it does not have the inbuilt driver module for my onboard lan card (RTL 8169). I downloaded the module (file - r8169-6.017.00.tar.bz2 and even r8169-6.015.00.tar.bz2), but when try to install it it says r8169.h , r8169_n.c , Makefile etc are not ELF formats.

After downlaoding , I did

Make clean modules - Multiple errors
Make install - multiple errors
depmod -a etc. - Files are not valid ELF format

I have checked lspci and my card is shown there with No driver installed.

Module (after extracting ) contains Makefile, Makefile_2.4.x , r8169.h, r8169_n.c, readme. I tried to build the source with its Makefile which also gives multiple errors saying that the parameters in Makefile not found.

Help me out of this !!!


Thanks,

Dexter

It would help you immensely to not be on a distribution that is almost 10 years old. Many of the things you will find now will not work well.

Hi mark54g,

Thanks for replying. Was wondering why nobody replied.
