Hello. I've purchased a NIC Ethernet PCI adapter D-Link DFE-520TX for my Linux PC. The card comes with an installation CD with instructions about compiling the driver. The driver is compatible with Linux 2.4/2.6. But I'm using Linux 3.2 and maybe I don't need to compile the driver that looks like a long process. I want to know if there is some website to verify if the NIC is recognized under Linux 3.2 without needing to compile the driver. It is dangerous install the NIC and switch on the PC to see if the card is recognized?
My system is:
Linux ELIC 3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3 i686 GNU/Linux
