This is the error from the make log if that helps,

$ cat /var/lib/dkms/r8168/8.042/build/make.log

Edit: Resolved by using the r8169 driver module instead .. aparently that works now in linux 4.7

Yeah I do its also a problem on Linux-git

clfarron4 commented on 2016-07-11 16:43

@talonz: Do you have the linux-mainline-headers package installed?

talonz commented on 2016-07-11 06:08

Your kernel headers for kernel cannot be found at
/usr/lib/modules//build or /usr/lib/modules//source.

clfarron4 commented on 2016-07-10 23:55

@talonz: It should just be an build and install and it works. Are you getting any errors when the module is being built?

talonz commented on 2016-07-09 23:31

how do i get dkms to work with the linux-mainline-headers ?

Please do a version bump up on to 8.041.00.

Thanks!
