    Default One solution for Realtek on-board ethernet drivers

    I have a giga-byte ga-945gcm motherboard with a realtek 8111C ethernet chip, Suse installs the r8169 module but Realtek specify the r8168 module.After much reading and many failed attempts to install this module using tar balls, I found this link to a rpm source
    RepoView: bitshuffler's Home Project (openSUSE_10.3_update)
    I downloaded for my 64bit system and left clicked on this file and install with YAST.
    As root, in a terminal
    insmod lib/modules/
    to install r8168
    and to stop running r8169, edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    by adding blacklist r8169
