MCE mini install issue on Intel D525MW - realtek 8111 on fedora 12

(1/3) > >>

mcenovice:
in my quest to get Linux home automation to work on my low power Mini board of Intel D525MW, i am now trying to install the mini install based upon Fed 12.
Fedora 12 installs fine, but now i have an issue that the NIC Realtek 8111/ 8168B does not work anymore.

I have checked the forums and it seems to be a general problem, also with Fed 13.
several attempts to install the new driver from Realtek did not work yet.
get error msgs when executing "make clean modules"..
found  /linux-networking-3/how-to-install-the-rtl-8168-8111-driver-555491/ describing the same issue, but did not come up with a solution.

anyone any suggestions on how to continue with the mini install ?  would like to be able to use Linux and zwave for home automation.. but sofar not much luck..
i am not a expert in Linux, but do know my way around with the command line..

thanks,


sofar i have tried to install the complete Linux MCE version 810. This one failed during the install with the message "installing Firefox".. seems to be a know issue.
tried to install fedora 13 with ISO download - this one failed to load - apparently due to know issues on gigabit motherboards ?
now tried to install fedora 12, but blocked due to NIC realtek 8111....

hari:
what did not work with the driver installation?

Hi Hari,

thanks for looking at the issue. Pulling my hair out to get a linuxmce to work on this machine..

issue is similar as something posted a long time ago in the general forum. I copied that below. for me its a different directory, but similar errors are occuring for me. error 2..
I get up to the command: make clean modules and then similar as below occurs.. (but with different directory). i can post the exact when i am home.
 

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen/build SUBDIRS=/usr/local/src/r1000_v1.05/src modules
make: Entering an unknown directory
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen/build: no that file or directory。 stop。
make: Leaving an unknown directory
make[1]: *** [modules] error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/r1000_v1.05/src'
make: *** [modules] error 2

maybe i have to install the driver differently? i saw somewhere a suggestion to do ": sudo ./autorun.sh but i have not tried it..




hari:
where did you get that instructions from?

mcenovice:
Hi Hari,

I have been searching the internt  for a solution.

have found the following :

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname-r)
sudo aptitude install build-essential
wget http://ww.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsview.aspx?Langid=1$PNid=13&Pfid=5&level=5&conn=4&DownTypeId=3&GetDown=false#2
tar xvfs r8168-8.018.00.tar.bz2  (should be the new driver probably r8168-8.026.00.tar.bz2)
cd r8168-8.018.00/
sudo ./autorun.sh
sudo reboot

have not had time to try it out yet.. will do so soon
