I've never used Linux before and I'm sure this is an easy question.
I'm installing a LAN card and the instructions say:
1. Compiling r8169.c using 'Makefile'.
Please remember to ASSIGN "NEW_INCLUDE_PATH" in the Makefile according to the linux kernel.
2. Move r8169.o to the directory "/lib/modules/<kernerl>/kernel/net".
OK, I understand how to copy the file over, but I can't figure out what the first step means. Mainly, how do I "ASSIGN 'NEW_INCLUDE_PATH' in the Makefile according to the linux kernel?"
There are three files in the directory on the installation CD that matches my Kernel...Makefile r8169.c and readme
I opened up Makefile and saw where it says "NEW_INCLUDE_PATH." But, how do the ASSIGN thing? Then, how to I compile r8169.c?
I'm using RedHat 9.0.
I sure hope someone can either answer this or tell me where to find the answer. Sorry for being a newbie!
