Post 3+ Months Ago

I'm a newbie when it comes to Linux, having only installed it a few days ago. After consulting friends, the net and assorted books, I decided to install Suse 9.1 as I understood it was newb-friendly. And it has. I'm finding it a great replacment for Windows XP-its highly customizable, is stable, is fast and its great for media and document work...except for one problem: no internet.

System:
Suse linux 9.1 Pro
AMD 64 3000+
Gigabyte K8NSNXP
1GB Kingston DDR400
36.7GB Western Digital Raptor

Problem:
There are 2 built in network ports on the motherboard. One of them is detected by the OS the other is not. Both of them do not work. I have been reading a lot of forums and people had them post some of the following.

I would like to get just one of these working, once that happens then I can worry about the other one. Any ideas? Thanks,

Justin

I tried running this program that I got from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nfor ... -0283.html and got the following:

 that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

Post 3+ Months Ago

I have been messing around with this a bit and got some different errors now. I have red the readme file but it does not tell me what I need to know. Well here is what I get,
Code: [ Select ]
 No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel
 interface.

                                   OK

 ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

                                   OK

 ERROR: Installation of the network driver has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-nforce-installer.log' for details. You may
     find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

                                   OK
  1.  No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel
  2.  interface.
  3.                                    OK
  4.  ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
  5.                                    OK
  6.  ERROR: Installation of the network driver has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-nforce-installer.log' for details. You may

  8.                                    OK


and the error log looks like this

I think the link above appliese to the graphics card driver but I think its the same procedure for the nforce nic install.
I got mine working and then it died after doing a yast online update. I think I have to install make, kernel-source and gcc and run the installer again using the --kernel-source-path=usr/src/linux option to get it going again.
