NIC not enabled and no driver for non Windows build

HP Recommended
HP Elitedesk 800 G3

I've setup 4 HP Elitedesk 800 G3 systems with Linux OS and all 4 systems cannot detect the onboard NIC. I've looked into HP's downloads and there are no availability for drivers for the Linux OS. A link was provided for the Linux Kernel Archive. I came up with a workaround by attaching a Ethernet to USB dongle to make a network connection. Please advise as I have 40 of these systems to setup. Thanks.

The only suggestion I can offer would be to use the Linux driver from Intel for the Intel® I219LM those PC's come with.

I've downloaded and extracted the recommended driver. However, when I execute the 'make load' command, I get a 'Makefile:3: *** missing separator. Stop.'


Here's what the Makefile looks like:



.include <>


KMOD    = if_em
SRCS    = device_if.h bus_if.h pci_if.h
CORE_src=if_em.c if_lem.c e1000_osdep.c em_compat.c
# Shared
COMMON_SHARED = e1000_api.c e1000_phy.c e1000_nvm.c e1000_mac.c e1000_manage.c
PCIE_SHARED = e1000_80003es2lan.c e1000_ich8lan.c e1000_82571.c
LEGACY_SHARED = e1000_82540.c e1000_82542.c e1000_82541.c e1000_82543.c

# These flags are only used when in a standalone tarball build

# Uncomment this to disable Fast interrupt handling.

# DEVICE_POLLING for a non-interrupt-driven method

# Uncomment this to enable the stack multiqueue routines
# with this driver you do not get multiple tx queues,
# but it does provide input queuing. Testing has shown
# some stability issues so its off by default.
# NOTE: it has been found that UDP intensive traffic
#       actually does better with the old stack interface
#       and so it seems better to have this off by default.
#       however it works fine, and some workloads may benefit
#       having it on.

	rm -f opt_bdg.h device_if.h bus_if.h pci_if.h setdef*
	rm -f *.o *.kld *.ko
	rm -f @ machine export_syms x86
	rm -f ${CLEANFILES}

.include <>


Line 3 is .include <>.
