    Network Problem

    Hi guys.. I am quite new with linux. I install RHEL-5 in my Intel PC. I have a Realtech NIC card. But it isnt installed in RHEL, but It used to work with Windows. When i manually add eth0 and activate it it says no physical device. Help me out

    What model of Realtek is this? Have you checked to see if it sees it? You can do the following to see:

    $ dmesg | grep Real
    $ lspsi
    $ cat /proc/pci

    See if anything mentions the card, and post the model as well (usually RL<model number>).

    Also, remember just because it worked in Windows, does not mean it will work in Linux at all. They are completely different, and when a manufacturer will NOT release the documentation to allow the Linux Community to create the drivers; usually they won't exist.

    What is the error from the install? Please post your compiling output.

    Check Old driver and unload it,
    Build the module and install
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-8.el5/build: No such file or derectory. Stop.
    make[1]: ***[modules] error 2
    make: ***[modules] error 2

    Make sure you have kernel-headers, and kernel-devel installed. After you do, try compiling again.
