Building New Kernel
Hello I am attempting to build a kernel with the Realtek PICe FE controller.
I am to the point where I am in xconfig but I do not know how to add the driver as an option. I downloaded the driver but I do not know what to do with it other than run autoconfig.sh
Can someone point me in the right direction to get this going?
Thanks again. For anyone searching here is the wiki…
Look on the wiki for the TomElliott kernel building.
Get my most current TomElliott.config from:
[url]https://mastacontrola.com/fogboot/kernel/TomElliott.config[/url] and rename it as .config within the linux tree. Follow all the rest of the instructions ([B]especially the linux-firmware bit[/B])
All should work properly. Basically I just added the 8106e firmware into the kernel so it can be detected automatically.
Tom that seems to have worked. Would you be willing to let me know how you did it for future use?
That’s what I’m here to do!
Thank you very much for the quick reply I am trying it now.
Kernel with 8106e fw can be downloaded at:
Is the Realtek PICe FE controller an included part of the ethernet drivers? Is it fiber? Does it rely on firmware?
I found the chipset and can build the kernel with this for you if you’d like.
