    Does Linux kernel 2.4.37 support RealTek RTL8102 Ethernet driver


    Hello,
    I've to use kernel version 2.4 for some project running on an Intel Atom Board which use RealTek RTL8102EL ethernet card.
    Does anyone knows if kernel version 2.4.37 has native support for this RTL8102 Ethernet card? If so, I'll re-compile to build this kernel. I tried to re-build the kernel driver code downloaded from official website, but it failed...
    Thanks in advance.
    Or does anyone know a any website providing a list of supported hardware of each Linux kernel version?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I don't know about a 2.4 kernel driver for this device, but the ndiswrapper driver should work. You will need to get the firmware from RealTek and a Windows driver for it.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
