    Unhappy Need help compiling a linux kernel


    Its been a week now for me trying to compile a kernel supporting my ethernet driver Realtek RTL8111 or RTL8168 is how it is named in linux, everytime I try placing the driver files in /usr/src/linux/drivers/net and modifying the Makefile and Config Im not able to see my driver when i do "make xconfig"..
    All I want is a bzImage with my driver, would anyone out there be so generous and compile a bzImage with that driver, its really been a pain for me, as Its the only thing left needed for my FOG server kernel to work with all computers.

    Thanks a lot

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

    How did you get the kernel sources? And what did you do to install the sources (apart from expanding a compressed tarball)?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I downloaded the latest kernel from kernel.org, 3.4.2
    I was able to see the driver I added in the config file, generated the bzImage and put in tftboot/fog and still my computer doesnt want to pxe boot... I dont know if i did anything wrong when compiling the kernel, although i thought if i saw it the config file it should be there
