    Exclamation Problem with Ralink RT2500 and Fedora Core 5


    Problem with Ralink RT2500 and Fedora Core 5:

    My Network Controller:
    [root@Fedora01 Module]# lspci
    ....
    02:0a.0 Network controller: RaLink Ralink RT2500 802.11G Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01)
    ....

    I have installed Fedora Core 5 with the following Kernel and header version:
    [root@Fedora01 Module]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
    kernel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5
    kernel-devel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5
    kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5

    [root@Fedora01 Module]# uname -r
    2.6.16-1.2080_FC5

    Maked the procedure from this link: http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...iver_in_Fedora , and the drivers from http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Downloads however I have the next error messages:

    [root@Fedora01 ~]# cd /usr/src

    Looks like you need gcc ;)

    Looks like you need gcc

    Try yum install gcc gcc-c++

    That should sort it....

    EDIT: This took me a while to figure out.... after you've run make and make install, run make install-fedora as well - this is VERY important, for some unknown reason

    Talking The solution was...

    Hi, finally I can navegate with the Ralink RT2500 and Fedora Core 5, the steps was the following:

    1)Reinstall Fedora Core 5

    2)The Ethernet connection works appropriately, I need connect to the Internet, and run like Root:
    #yum update kernel
    ...

    Restart

    3)Verify the new version of the kernel:
    #rpm -qa | grep kernel
    kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
    kernel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5

    #uname -r
    2.6.16-1.2080_FC5

    4)Update the kernel devel
    #yum update kernel-devel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5
    ...

    Restart

    5)Verify the upgrade of kernel:
    #rpm -qa | grep kernel
    kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
    kernel-devel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5
    kernel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5

    6)Run
    #yum install gcc kernel-devel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5
    ...

    Restart

    7)Download the latest rt2500 CVS source tar package from http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Downloads and unpack it. It will unpack itself in a directory like rt2500-cvs-2006041016

    8 )Run:
    ~#cd /root/Desktop/rt2500-cvs-2006041016/Module
    Module#make
    Module#make install

    9)Now the module will have probably been placed in /lib/modules/(kernelversion)
    custom/extra, this is wrong and you can't modprobe if you leave it there, so
    we need to move it to /lib/modules/(kernelversion)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

    #cp /lib/modules/(kernelversion)/custom/extra/rt2570.ko /lib/modules/(kernelversion)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

    #insmod /lib/modules/(kernelversion)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2570.ko

    #depmod -a

    10)Open up another root terminal when the PC comes back up. Type this to make
    sure the module is loaded ok, if no error is returned then it looks like we're
    ok.

    #modprobe rt2570

    11)Configuration
    Launch Desktop > System Settings > Network
    Devices, New, it appears the Ralink RT2500
    Add IP Address (if apply)
    Subnet Mask
    Default Gateway
    Name SSID, Channel,etc.
    Add 'DNS' as appropriate

    and OK

    Thanks for the "How to" on Fedora nauxe! I have the Ralink pci and usb devices on my computers and they work very well. Ralink is serious about supporting open source. If I'm not mistaken, they are the first chip maker who has helped to provide 802.11G drivers that work without having to use Ndiswrapper.

    You probably need to install the kernel devel package.
    yum install kernel-devel
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    kernel-devel should be on your FC5 install cd 4.

    thanks Dan, but im reinstalling my FC5 right now anyways. most of my problems have been from a bad install. so it shouldn't be a problem once im done reinstalling it.
