    will 2008 spring?


    will the 2008 spring free edition work with my RT2561/rt61 wireless network card out of the box? I am using mandriva ONE right now and it works perfect right out of the box sort of to speak.

    More than likely it will work, or you could do what I do. Backup all your network config files to a safe place (USB or Floppy) and then restore them to the new install. Setting up the Drivers isn't really all that hard after you have done it once or twice. If you end up in trouble, just post a new thread with details.

    It should work out of the box. I ran the rc1 and it worked out of the box with my rt73 card. The drivers for ralink chipsets are opensource, so most distros include them by default or you can download them from Serialmonkey.

    I'm not real familiar with Mandriva, but I think the config files are in /etc/sysconfig/networking
    Hoepfully someone with Mandriva experience can point you in the right direction.
