  Realtek driver v8.036.00-ppa1-precise1 doesn't build

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm sorry, but Launchpad wouldn't let me attach this bug to package
  "realtek-r8168-dkms", because it's PPA-only.

  I'm running Xubuntu 12.04.3 on a HP ProBook 4530s.
  The wired network doesn't work, and the driver loaded out-of-the-box is r8169 - but lspci says it's actually a "RTL8111/8168/8411".

  There's a PPA by "Arturo Casal", providing the r8168 driver:

  Installing Arturo's "realtek-r8168-dkms" package from PPA fails to

  Same goes for most recent available packaged kernel v3.2.0-57-generic.

  I have replaced the source in /usr/src/realtek-r8168-8.036.00/ with the most recent version (8.037.00) from Realtek's driver site:

  Compiling v8.037.00 worked fine. The generated module (r8168) installs and loads fine.
  The wired network problem however, persists.
