10.04 server can't install nic r8168 driver
New server built with 10.04 LTS server 64b. Have updated kernel to 2.6.32-44, installed build-essentials, and have latest linux-headers for this kernel. Need realtek driver r8168 to supprt second nic card (for LAN). Kernels come with old driver r8169 for some reason which doesn't support 10/100/1000 cards which use realtek chipset. File is on a flash drive which is mounted. The driver has an autorun.sh intall, but the install fails with error "make: *** No rule to make target `all' . Stop." .
This is one of the most common nics available and the only one available here. The on mb eth0 is actually a 10/100/1000 device but an earlier series which will work with the r8169, although limted to 10/100. Both devices are fully supported by r8168. Grateful for any resolution.
Ifconfig doesn't list a second ethx.
