Need help configuring Linksys WMP54G (Ralink rt2561 chipset) under Slackware-11???
I just installed Slackware 11-rc1 (current) a couple of nights ago after reading Pat's message in the changelog. It's been a while since I've really used Slack on a day to day basis. Up until recently I've been using Gentoo on my laptop and FreeBSD on my desktop. I have to admit, I've been curious about the version 11 release ever since the release of 10.1, so once Mr. Volkerding made it official by stating that this release candidate would be of the highly anticipated version 11 branch, I couldn't wait anymore :D . Which brings me to my dilemma...
The box for which I have bestowed thy current OS upon is a Dell Dimension 4500:
...I have the DFE-530TX connected to a Linksys EZXS55W 5 port Workgroup Switch, which is then connected to a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router that is connected to my cable modem.
* Dell Dimension 4500
-->BIOS version A03
* Intel Pentium 4
-->2GHz (1993.580MHz) /512KB L2 Cache /400MHz FSB
* 1024Mb DDR RAM (2x512) @333MHz
* Seagate 80Gb HDD
-->Dual Boot setup 40Gb WinXP/ 40Gb Slackware
* Wireless NIC
-->Linksys WMP54G (Ralink RT2561 Chipset)
* Ethernet NIC
-->DLink DFE-530TX+ (VIA RHINE-III)
Now I'm trying to get this wireless card running because for some odd reason my wired ethernet connection is running incredibly slooowwww!!! So I followed the diections as described here, however when I get to the part that says...
....I get a permission denied error. The odd part about all this is that I'm in "SuperUser" mode which is why I can't understand if not root then who??? :???: I can only hope that someone can make some sense about what my problem is :???: . As usual, any suggestions are always appreciated, thanx :cool: .
