GIGABIT card driver installation linux/fedora
Installation of the sk98lin driver on your Linux system
The prerequisites for compilation, loading and patch creation of the
sk98lin driver are:
- Any device using the sk98lin kernel module needs to be closed.
- The old sk98lin kernel module needs to be unloaded.
Per default the installation script will do this automatically
(if "installation" mode is selected).
then a command line gui thats in the linux system
In Fedora 8 cd into /usr/src/kernels/kernel version
execute as [root@xxx ~]# make gconfig in the kernels dir ( uname -r
22.214.171.124-107.fc is mine Like so
[root@mail ~]# cd /usr/src/kernels/126.96.36.199-107.fc8-i686
[root@mail 188.8.131.52-107.fc8-i686]# make gconfig

Depending on your current environment mode (console or graphical),
you have to invoke different Kernel configuration commands:
1 - In the console mode, execute the command:
# make menuconfig
2 - In the graphical mode, execute the command:
# make xconfig
2a - In the graphical mode with kernel 2.6, execute the command:
# make gconfig
This builds a few programs and displays the kernel
configuration menu. In this menu you can modify several options
of the kernel configuration.
3. Select the options you want to compile into the new kernel.
- For kernel 2.4.x family:
a. Select the menu "Network Device Support".
b. Select "Ethernet (1000 Mbit)".
- For kernel 2.6.x family:
a. Select the menu "device drivers"
b. Select the menu "Network Device Support".
c. Select "Ethernet (1000 Mbit)".
4. Select how to use the driver in the Linux kernel.
- To compile the driver as a module, mark
"Marvell Yukon Chipset/SysKonnect SK-98xx Support" with (M).
- To integrate the driver permanently into the kernel, mark
"Marvell Yukon Chipset/SysKonnect SK-98xx Support" with (*).
5. Select if you want to use Rx polling (NAPI).
- To enable Rx polling of the driver, mark
"Use Rx polling (NAPI)" with (*).
- To disable Rx polling of the driver, do not mark
"Use Rx polling (NAPI)".
6. Select "Exit".
7. Select the menu "Loadable module support".
8. Select "Enable loadable module support".
9. Select "Kernel module loader".
10. Configure other options depending on your needs (e.g. SCSI).
11. To quit the configuration, select "Exit".
12. When the message "Do you wish to save your new kernel configuration"
is displayed, select "Yes".
Now my giggabit card works at gigabit speeds
