    Default NIC Driver Realtek RTL8139

    Hi, i have "Realtek RTL8139" network card. I booted using backtrack and when i do ifconfig im only getting info for "l0 Link encap: local loopback".

    The realtek website has only drivers for kernel version 2.4.5 whereas the backtrak im running now is kernel version 2.6.21.5. First of all i dont no whether this 2.4.5 driver works or not. Also how do i install this network card drivers. I have extracted the files to root folder and it has three following files
    8139too.c
    readme.txt
    makefile

    What archive type did the drivers come in(ie tar / tar.gz / .tgz /etc) and what command did you use to extract them?

    The absolute best place to start looking when it comes to installing software no matter the platform or software at hand is the documentation that came with it.
    In your case the readme.txt
    open it with any sort of text viewer and see what it tells you.
    Example:
    Code:
    # nano readme.txt
    Then the next best place to look would be your second "help file" in this case the makefile itself this will tell you any special arguments that may need to be passed in order to complete the install.

    Default this is what i get from dmesg | grep eth0 & ifconfig

    bt ~ # dmesg | grep eth0
    eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xe000, 00:20:ed:68:b1:72, IRQ 21
    eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8101'
    eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0x45E1




    bt ~ #
    bt ~ # ifconfig
    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)


    Also the readme.ext inside the driver folder has nothing much. it hasnt got anything installation method.
