Hey!
Realtek NICs are not supported by DPDK.
You can check the list of supported HW here -
https://core.dpdk.org/supported/
As a workaround you can setup virtual machine (e.g. using KVM) with virtual
NIC which is supported by DPDK (e.g. vmxnet3)

BTW: here is an article where someone tried to write his own PMD for
Realtek NIC -
