HI Expert,

I'm using redhat linux 9 and try to install DLINK DFE-530TX+ ethernet card. I follow the procedure to compile the driver rtl8139.c to a rtl8139.o using gcc. But, I see a lot of errors such as:
  should never include linux kernel header file..


Did you have such prolem before?

Thanks a lot

For your machine you will probably need the:
export CC='kgcc -I/usr/src/linux/include'
command before compiling.  

Are the header files installed on your system?  You should see
a lot of files if you do:
ls /usr/src/linux/include/linux
or
ls /usr/src/linux-<version>/include/linux/

1. Prior to installing the DLINK drivers, go through the NIC identification, and INSTALL script.
see what version of redhat os it can work well.
The driver install script may not recognize redhat kernel 9 or something.
get the kernel it recognize(let say linux-2.xx)

create a folder /usr/src/linux-2.xx

when compliling driver for DLINK
include these header files like
./configure ..... with-kernel-includes=/usr/src/linux-2.xx/
