I just installed Ubuntu on my hard drive.
I am not connected to the internet because Ubuntu does not recognize my Atheros AR8161 ethernet.
Therefore I have downloaded a total of 11 files in order to make build-essential and linux headers.

Right after I installed Ubuntu, I ran all this and it worked. Ubuntu recognized my driver.
But then when I rebooted everything was gone!
Firstly, I don't want to have to go through all this every time I boot Ubuntu.
Secondly, I did exactly what I did the first time, but now the second time I get error messages.
Here is the output:
You can see from the output that build essential and linux headers are ready to go....I think....maybe I didnt wait long enough?
