RV: How can I install a Agere NIC in my laptop?



I send my specs file.

I have the same problem with: 
rpmbuild -ba /home/user/REDHAT/SPECS/et131x.spec


"unknown tag: %suse_kernel_module_package um"



mkdir -p /home/user/REDHAT/{RPMS,SRPMS,SOURCES,BUILD,SPECS} 
is changed to
mkdir -p /usr/src/redhat/{RPMS,SRPMS,SOURCES,BUILD,SPECS}

Is this OK?


Thanks

that's because you have installed the source package.
the modules still need building...

cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
vi et131x.spec (or whatever the file is called)

or indeed, post the top portion of the spec file here - please do not
include the %files or %changelog sections and perhaps someone can help
you fix it?

it looks like the spec file is aimed at a SUSE distribution.
So many of the requirements will have slightly different names under
fedora.


but *please* build this as a non-root user.
###############
log in as (choose a valid username!)
# vi /home/<user>/.rpmmacros -> add this line (put the correct username)

%_topdir /home/<user>/REDHAT

# now create the dirs you need
mkdir -p /home/user/REDHAT/{RPMS,SRPMS,SOURCES,BUILD,SPECS}

now install the src rpm as your <user> - it will put its files under
/home/user/REDHAT/SOURCES and /home/user/REDHAT/SPECS/

You can now edit the spec file and rebuild the rpm using

rpmbuild -ba /home/user/REDHAT/SPECS/et131x.spec

Then you may have problems. I would assume that you mean kernel-devel?
can you not download that to the box you use to send these messages?
