I tried that already. Compiling first yielded an error message that I could solve using some patch from the internet. But after it had compiled successfully and I loaded the module, wifi wouldn't work any more and the whole system became unstable. Then I read somewhere to blacklist rt28** modules. After I had done this, wifi still didn't work and the system became even more unstable...
Is there anybody who successfuly built the Ralink-drivers on Fedora 16 and can tell me the steps how to do this and what has to be configured manually after "make install"?
These are the loaded modules at the moment:
$ lsmod | grep rt2
rt2800pci 9507 0
rt2800lib 39527 1 rt2800pci
crc_ccitt 1557 1 rt2800lib
rt2x00pci 5768 1 rt2800pci
rt2x00lib 46254 3 rt2800pci,rt2800lib,rt2x00pci
mac80211 251806 3 rt2800lib,rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
cfg80211 151125 2 rt2x00lib,mac80211
eeprom_93cx6 1647 1 rt2800pci
loading rt3090.ko and blacklisting rt2800pci, rt2800lib, rt2x00pci and rt2x00lib renders the system unstable and seems to be a bad idea in general, since there are other modules that seem to depend on those rt2***-modules...
Here somebody uses the packages from RussianFedora and reports, wlan works fine after that: http://forums.fedora-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=479786
Maybe I'm going to try this myself tomorrow.
