Re: RealTek NIC driver 8168/8111 - for testing.
Thanks for your efforts to get this driver done. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working for me, but I do have some error output for you.> vmkload_mod -v 16 r8168Verbose:16

vmkload_mod: Can not load module r8168: Not in executable format
It seemed no matter how I tried loading the module, the last line of the above error always showed up. I tried Googling "Not in executable format" but didn't get any sense out of it, so I'm hoping you know what that means?
I'd like to try compiling this driver myself, but I have read on this forum that we can't use native Linux drivers. So can you tell me the basics (or details if you like) of how you went about compiling this driver? I have access to any flavour of Linux required, and while I'm not a programmer, I know my way around both Windows and Linux pretty well
Thanks again, and I hope to hear back from you soon!
