[etherlab-users] Linux Distribution for IgH EtherCAT Master

Hello all,

I would like to use the IgH EtherCAT Master for Linux, but I have one
(simple) question. Maybe is more related to Linux, but I hope any of you
can help me.
Right now, I am using Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) with kernel 2.6.32 and
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet
I downloaded the version 1.4.0 of the EtherCAT Master, and (as expected for
the table of supported HW in the website) I got this message when I try to
run ./configure:

checking for Linux kernel sources...
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-35-generic-pae (Kernel 2.6.32-35-generic-pae)
checking for kernel for 8139too driver... configure: error: kernel 2.6.32
not available for 8139too driver!

I was trying to go back to an older kernel (2.6.24) without success. I have
read that Lucid distribution only supports from 2.6.32, but what I see is
that EtherLab works only up to kernel 2.6.31.
My question is, which Linux distribution and kernel would you recommend me
to use according to my HW for a proper behaviour of the Master?

Thanks in advance,
