comment What is the realtime equivalent of the module r8169?
Well, just for the sake I installed that new driver and recompiled the rtnet. Thanks to you. The error messages I used to get previously have now reduced. But, still I wish to understand what exactly is happening when those messages come so I'll form a new question for that.

Thanks Alexio, this is the network card I have Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 01) BTW, I don't think using the experimental driver would be much sensible task for the hard real time things specially when the developer himself doesn't recommend it.

thanks very much, I just had a talk with the Jan Kizka. He said this experimental version may cause problems. :( Scroll down here:sourceforge.net/mailarchive/… , BTW, Should I install some other kernel which has 8139 driver?

@UlrichDangel Your debugging link just says that you have to remove the normal linux driver in order to be able to load the rt one Ah, so that's done at least. The title isn't very clear actually.

@UlrichDangel Forgive me, I am not getting the point here. I was supposed to remove the rt driver rt_8169? So, what was the point in removing the r8169? Pardon my ignoarnce.

@UlrichDangel Now, with that output in first post is it clear that Linux driver for the real-time network device has actually been removed?

@UlrichDangel This worked now, I ran ethtool -i eth0 and it returned me r8169. So, that's the driver's name. See CONFIG_R8169_VLAN=y in my .config. What does that represent?

Alexio - I've again edited the first post, removed the previous info and added new one. It is 8169 that is getting removed , not 8139. Now, with that output is it clear that finally "Linux driver for the real-time network device" has actually been removed? Besides @UlrichDangel Is ethtool -i $DEVICE to be used as it is?

Thanks for your help. Edited the question. It seems that the driver's name was r8139, not r81349too. There isn't a config file for the 2.6.38.8 (compiled myself), but the file was for 2.6.34-12 (default Suse). So, I did rmmod r8139, and that worked. what to do about the config file?

actually I tried insmod 8139too, and that worked. Then I removed it, and it also worked. What is the way to find my "ethernet port's driver"?
