    Default Cannot connect to internet

    I am new to both Linux and OpenSuse. I have not yet been able to connect to the internet.

    The ethernet controller is Attansic. I think I have the drivers, but I do not know how to get it installed, nor do I know which one to install.

    The CD came with these Linux drivers:
    atl.h
    at1_ethtool.c
    atl1_hw.c
    atl1_hw.h
    atl1_main.c
    atl1_param.c
    Makefile

    I have run aticonfig and rpmbuild -tb and other commands on Makefile and some of the other files, but no installation program starts.

    So, my question is: which file goes where, and how do I get it there in order to get connected to the interned?

    Running OpenSuse 11
    Gnome 2.22.1
    Linux Kernel 2.6.25.5-1.1

    Thank you for your help.

    I do not know the specifics of that device, but in general, you should
    copy those files to a particular directory, change directory, and type
    the command 'make'. Once that completes without error, then 'sudo
    make install'. That should make the driver available. You would than
    need to 'sudo /sbin/modprobe -v xxxx', where xxxx.ko is the
    driver's name.

    Once the driver loads correctly, you then need to configure it.

    I am pretty sure the "driver" provided on the CD will

    a) not compile without problems

    b) not be needed
