View Full Version : netgear drivers??!
hi all i just installed suse 7.3 on my laptop, 1st time ever running linux..but it did not detect my netgeat FA410tx nic card :( i was wondering if anyone knew where to get drivers for this card for suse? and pls tell me how to install them? thanks in advance :)
I set up a Netgear FA311 in Linux once. I believe I went out to Netgear's site, and they had a driver there. I had to compile it as a kernel module, and then insert it into the running kernel.

ooo thats how my sound drivers are!!!!!!!!
how do i do it?
the readme wasnt helpful at there website
I thought you said you had your sound drivers working.
Insert a module? Easy.
Get the source package in .tar.gz form and type:
tar zxvf <source-package>.tar.gz
Then cd into the directory and look for a file called configure. If it is there then type:
./configure && make && make install
If it isn't, just do:
make && make install
This should sort out the module. After it has been compiled, type lsmod to make sure it is loaded. If it hasn't been loaded, type insmod <module> and that *should* work.
It all depends on the drivers, eg my nvidia kernel module, I just had to unpack it and run make. It did the rest itself
