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_Drv126.96.36.199/Module modules
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2925.fc6-i686'

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.
