RTL8111/8168 NIc Driver & RHEL4

Postby sevensins » Tue Aug 05, 2008 1:09 pm

AOA,
I have a system that has an RTL 8111/8168 gbps lan card. I have installed RHEL4 and the kernel doesnt have the driver for it. I have downloaded the driver, compiled it and is running...

Would like to know if I could inject the driver intyo the RHEL 4 source as the source resides on an NFS and all the clients wil be installing from there.

any help suggestions would be highly appreciated...
Regards,

AOA,

Dear,

Download the file http://www.crystalnetworks.org/realtek_r1000.tgz extract it by
tar xvzf realtek_r1000.tgz
then goto LAN folder and read the readme file.

I was also facing the same issue, and this worked out.

Hope it works for you.

If the URL is unreachable..try to open it after 2 hrs, as my UPS died few days back, i am still working to fix it.
Kind Regards

Watch out for the !
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?
