I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my desktop and am using the integrated Realtek ethernet networking on my Gigabyte motherboard. Unfortunately, the device does not work after a new linux kernel is installed. I found a device driver that works, but I have to install it manually each time. I just open a terminal, navigate to the folder with the driver and do a
sudo sh autorun.sh
and it works again. Not the end of the world, but a bit inconvenient. The driver is r8168-8.040.00
Is there a way that I can set it up so that the driver is install when the kernel is installed? Thanks!
