    evidently you haven't installed the c compiler.
    if you are using debian "apt-get install gcc"
    other distributions, other ways

    Every Where
    I was found same problem in RHEL 5 (Tikanga)....

    Error came kernel module directory
    check the following symlink directory is present or not ? in /lib/modules/2.6.18-8.el5

    1) source
    2) build

    both are link to /usr/scr/kernel/2.6.18-8.el5-i6386

    if your modules dont have above directory , it wont run any Make command properly

    ( i reinstall my Tikanga for above directory and then r8101 installed properly)
