Posted by kaspermalfroid on Dec. 05 2006,20:47hi everybody,
i'm trying to run DSL on my 256mb USB stick, and everything runs smoothly, not included the onboard LAN and onboard sound of my ASRock ConRoeXFire-eSATA2 mobo. how can I make these 2 things work? (driver download/manual install?)
Posted by Winter Knight on Dec. 10 2006,22:42I looked up some info for you:
Lan: Realtek RTL8111B
Audio: Realtek ALC888
I was looking on the internet, and it looks like realtek offers linux drivers. I went there, but they are having site problems. Hopefully they will fix them before you read this. Here is the link to realtek's home page:

i 'll try with these 2:
< this > hd audio driver on < this > page (Linux Public 4.05b)
and < this > LAN driver on < this > page (Linux 1.05)
Posted by kaspermalfroid on Dec. 11 2006,12:43it won't work...
maybe because i've got very basic linux knowledge
i tried the sound driver... unpacking works (you even don't have to do it with the terminal!) and then i navigate to the directory with terminal (\mnt\hdb5\realtek-linux-audiopack-4.05b) and type
then it seems to install nice, but it gives errors cause it doesn't recognise the MAKE commands
same errors when i try the LAN install
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Dec. 11 2006,14:31You can use mydsl and grab one of the gcc1* packages (or apt-get it)
fyi, the 'make' program usually indicates you have to compile something as well.
Posted by danielp on June 12 2008,20:42This is an old thread, but I happen to be in the same situation.
Specifically, I need to compile that network driver.
I've tried to install the mydsl extension: gcc1-with-libs.dsl but apparently it's missing the kernel header files in /lib/modules/2.4.31/build/
Where can I get those?
In the MyDsl repos, I see kernelsource.dsl but it states it's for 2.4.26; is it compatible with DSL 4.4?

No, 4.4 uses 2.4.31. There's a kernel source (dsl) package in testing if you need to compile a module for 4.x (and the 2.x versions with 2.4.31).
