This is *kind of* a 'make' error. It can't find some makefile dealing
with your kernel.

First of all, do `uname -r` and make sure the result is
linux- If it's not, you will need to specify the kernel

I did <uname -r> before I wrote, to be sure I knew what kernel version is
here. The response is <>. I do not see in the list
that YaST has anything about a version like "-obj".

I have kernel-source and kernel-syms.

(hopefully when you run ./configure, otherwise you'll have to edit the
makefile itself).

Perhaps that will become clearer to me later. Right now, I do not find a
way to edit makefile, nor a way to avoid doing so.

And if you're not sure you have the kernel headers installed, check.

I didn't see "kernel-headers" in YaST. A more fundamental search brings
them up as "linux-kernel heades"

Te Error 2 is now as follows, containing several errors, including an
unfound command:

# make clean modules

CC [M] /home/stan/NIC/r8168-8.014.00/src/r8168_n.o

/bin/sh: gcc: command not found

Is a powerful hint at the problem.
