    check this link

    some site also mentioned to do
    insmod nistnet.ko
    insmod /pathto/nistnet.ko
    instead of running the script.

    From your Q and your first link, you do not have the rtc module (real time clock, /dev/rtc). When you configured your new (actually, rather old) kernel, what did you say for Generic /dev/rtc emulation (GEN_RTC) under Character devices?
    The FATAL: error is from modprobe trying to insmod rtc. It seems Nistnet expects rtc to be built as a module - in "make xconfig" did you tick it? that builds it permanently into the cernel. You need to dot it (click on box till dot appears).
