I am trying to install the correct LAN card drivers on openSuse 12.1. This is the output of the log file for the script:

Sun Jul  1 21:50:45 IDT 2012
Sun Jul  1 21:59:26 IDT 2012
make -C src/ clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/shelly/r8168-8.031.00/src'
make -C /lib/modules/3.1.0-1.2-desktop/build SUBDIRS=/home/shelly/r8168-8.031.00/src clean
make: Entering an unknown directory
make: Leaving an unknown directory
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/shelly/r8168-8.031.00/src'

How can I figure out what went wrong?

Uh, you want to know what went wrong with a clean operation? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 1 '12 at 19:06
After running the card still doesn't work, so I assumed that the install failed. – dotancohen Jul 1 '12 at 19:24
The clean operation doesn't build, much less install. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 1 '12 at 19:27
The autorun script did not continue after the clean operation. Why? Something went wrong. What might that have been? Other than the log I don't have any other information to provide. It is a clean 12.1 install with an ASUS P8H61-M LX motherboard that cannot access the internet due to not having the LAN driver installed. – dotancohen Jul 1 '12 at 19:41
