    2. Hi, I install fedora 8 with LENOVO Thinkcenter Edge core i5/32bit but I was not able to install its NIC.

      NIC: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06).

      I tried to reinstall the NIC Driver using r8168-8.035.00 still not successful with error message

      check old driver and unload it.
      build the module and install.
      make: *** /lib/modules/3.3.4-5.fc17.i686/build: No such file or directory. Stop
      make[1]: *** [clean] Error 2
      make: *** [clean] Error 2

    4. Hi enasr,

      Could you post full commands and error messages when you try to reinstall driver?

      And could you also post output of following commands:

      
      uname -a
      
      rpm -qa kernel\* |sort

      • Hi enasr,

        Something strange on your kernel packages, you are running kernel what you have not even installed. I think that you need also kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages installed, so try following:

        
        yum update kernel
        
        yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers
        

        Then reboot using latest kernel and try installation again.

      • Hi vinay,

        You should shrink your Windows partitions if you have not any free disk space or alternatively try install Fedora 18 on VirtualBox.
