    Unhappy Problems Compiling RaLink's RT73 Linux Driver on FC6

    I'm having problems compiling the RaLink RT73 drivers for my EDIMAX EW-7318Ug wifi USB.


    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2925.fc6/build SUBDIRS=/home/damber/Desktop/RT73_Linux_STA_Drv1.0.3.6/Module modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2925.fc6-i686'
      CC [M]  /home/damber/Desktop/RT73_Linux_STA_Drv1.0.3.6/Module/rtmp_main.o
    /home/damber/Desktop/RT73_Linux_STA_Drv1.0.3.6/Module/rtmp_main.c: In function ‘usb_rtusb_probe’:

    make: *** [all] Error 2
    uname -r:

    kernel packages:

    It seems that either the source code has one or two bugs and referencing none existent variables etc, or that it isn't referencing the kernel source /headers properly.

    Any ideas on how I can resolve this ? Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    (...I seem to be doomed where linux and wifi are concered....... )

    This build worked fine for me

    when I had to set up a DLink USB dongle for my neighbor, but I was using an older kernel in Ubuntu 6.10 - Version 2.6.17. I don't know if that would make a difference or not.
