OK, I am stupid... of course I can build the src.rpm from the rpmfusion repository... it builds and installs. However, I have to investigate further: I can see the APs, but I can't log in (WPA Personal)

nicubunu,
Thanks for trying to help.
Did you try to build the RPM from the SRPMS that are in the rpmfusion's testing repo right now? Those are the old drivers. The SRPM that I made is for the newer rt2860 driver, which supposedly has to work more efficient.

Note that to build my RPM you will still need kmodtool from rpmfusion (or livna).

I don't have the rawhide kernel but I will install it and build the RPM's for you (and other people).

ps: It looks like there is a newer kernel in rawhide now. I will do the RPMS for that one.

Your sources (fc9) refused to compile on my rawhide ("error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.PxEtLe *%prep)") so I used a src.rpm from here: http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/development/

Hi sathish. These driver files are for Fedora only. If you follow the instructions you can install the drivers for the latets Fedora kernel. Sorry, I can't help with other distros directly. But I am attaching two complete patches (the first one is for Fedora) you should apply to build the drivers. By the way, the 2.6.22 kernel should not require the patches. It should work directly.

Note that because the first patch fixes the issues with backporting a new kernel feature from newer kernel into Fedora kernel, it may not work for other distros. If it fails, try the second patch.

Patch1: http://6mata.com:8014/rt2870/rt2870-....patch.tar.bz2
Patch2: http://6mata.com:8014/rt2870/rt2870-....patch.tar.bz2

To apply patches, extract them where you extracted the 1.4.0.0 driver files and do a:
Code:
patch -p1 < rt2870-complete-fedora.patch
or
Code:
patch -p1 < rt2870-complete.patch

Question How does akmod fit?

I note that in the rpmfusion repository there is an akmod-rt2860-1.8.0.fc9.1.x86_64.rpm available. Is using akmod viable with the rt2860 drivers?

I ask because updating the kernel on a wireless system is multistep now. It would be nice to use akmod to automatically build the driver to the new kernel like akmod can do for the nvidia driver.

These drivers work very well with my Edimax EW-7728In card on an x86_64 system.

Thanks

Brad

Yes, the akmod is derived from the same SRPM I put on the last page (with a minor improvement). The rt2860 driver at rpmfusion is now updated to 1.8.0. You can use either the kmod or the akmod, whichever you want.

Also note that, these rt2860/rt2870 kmods and akmods will not be needed as soon as their code gets into the mainstream kernel, which is planned to happen in kernel-2.6.29 (still 3-4 months).

How do I go about getting a working rt2860 driver for Fedora 10? I'm about to just say screw it and clean-install FC9.

An update: shortly after my previous post I was able to get the rt2860 drivers from RPMfusion and everything was working great. However, once kernel 2.6.27.5-94 hit, it's no longer working. I'll keep messing around and report back if I make any headway. Any input would be appreciated.

vinic,
Rawhide experiences frequent kernel updates. It's hard to keep up the kmods synchronized all the time and it requires a significant amount of manpower. Therefore a decision was made to build kmods for rawhide only once a week. You can either make your own kmod (or akmod) or you should wait a little more.

Using the current drivers (via yum install) on FC9, latest kernel. I cannot connect when using AES, I can when using TKIP... if I select Both (tkip and aes) it will not connect, i have to have it as TKIP only... any thoughts, or is it my system


rt2860, fc9 x86_64

kmod-rt2860-2.6.26.5-45.fc9.x86_64-1.8.0.0-1.fc9.1.x86_64
rt2860-1.8.0.0-1.fc9.noarch
kmod-rt2860-2.6.27.5-37.fc9.x86_64-1.8.0.0-1.fc9.6.x86_64
kmod-rt2860-2.6.26.6-79.fc9.x86_64-1.8.0.0-1.fc9.2.x86_64
kmod-rt2860-1.8.0.0-1.fc9.6.x86_64

kernel 2.6.27.5-37.fc9.x86_64

That might be a driver problem. You may need to contact the author:

Quick question, i have a Buffla WLI-UC-G300N which i think runs off the rt2870 driver. I just installed Fedora 10, installed RPM fusion, and the rt2870 driver, however, i cant seem to be able to find it listed anywhere on Fedora, under any wireless command or GUI. Any ideas how i could get this working?

We can add the device ID to the driver header so that when you plugin the device, the kernel recognizes it and assigns the rt2870sta driver to your device. Are you sure that your device is rt2870? Post the lsusb or lspci -nv output depending on what kind of hardware you have.

Google shows 0 results for "Buffla WLI-UC-G300N". Is there a typo?

Edit: I found a Buffalo WLI-UC-G300N with vendor/device ID: 0x0411,0x00e8
If you can confirm this via your lspci -nv or lsusb output I'll add it to the rpmfusions kmod.
