[SOLVED] Install help for novice
1:§ Ok I'm trying to figure out how to install Ethernet 10/100 and Realtek drivers into Mandriva Discovery. I have located the .tar.gz files but I cannot get any results. Commands like make, make install, .config, modprobe, insmod and others from the readme instructions do not work. I can't find RPMs for these drivers either and just found out I need to install gcc g++ binutil and others, or so I think. Could someone share the process of installing .tar.gs files or point me to resources of info specific to Mandriva.
Also I want to ask, If you fudge up and install using terminal commands will Linux automatically delete files folders that were attempted to be apart of the install or will I just have junk floating around the system tree.
I'm really back to basics here....But I did manage to dual boot Discovery and XP so all hope is not lost!
