nvnet drivers and kernel sources problem
I recently installed Yoper Linux (yesterday), and, I have a problem. I need to get my ethernet card working. I have found the drivers, and have all those ducks in quite the row. However, the installer needs the kernel source (126.96.36.199-3), and, well, all I can find on the FTP mirrors of yoper.com are SRPM's.
Is it possible to unpack the SRPM so that it's a normal directory, or .tar.gz? All I need to do is point the installer to the directory of the kernel sources, and, well, I tried it with the stock 188.8.131.52 from kernel.org, but since it's a patched version that I'm using, it won't work.
Thanks for your time,

Why not just use the Yoper software installation tool (whatever it's called) to install the kernel source from Yoper's SRPM?"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

nvnet should be implemented in all 2.6.8 series kernels. Have you tried install 184.108.40.206-7 using apt-get or synaptic?
You could also try
if it happens that your kernel does have the module and it just isn't being loaded at boot.
