Re: Realtek RTL8111B fc6 problems



Boris,
you are great!
Finally it works! And it seems quite good.
Ok, I did this.
- downloaded kernel-2.6.18-1.2747.fc6.src.rpm
- install the src.rpm
- changed spec file putting 1 only in
%define buildsmp 1
and
%define includexen 1
- done an rpmbuild -bp
- applied the further patch you outlined r8169.c
- gone into /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.18/linux-2.6.18.i386/
- make
- make modules_install
- copy under /boot of the vmlinuz file generated
- mkinitrd for the new kernel
- reboot

Network seems to work.

I'm not inside a lan so I can only test through the dsl modem.
This kind of connectivity seems quite good at the moment.
Eventually I can connect a laptop through cross cable and give other
kind of results obtained.
Tell me if you like.
Francois, I'm going to send e-mail to the netdev address you gave.
