RaLink RT3090

Hello all,

I need to get the wifi working on my Fit PC 2 server, which is running OpenSuse 11.2
the chip is RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe

I downloaded the driver, but in order to compile, I need to do the following :

2> In Makefile
         set the "MODE = STA" in Makefile and chose the TARGET to Linux by set "TARGET = LINUX"
         define the linux kernel source include file path LINUX_SRC
         modify to meet your need.

3> In os/linux/config.mk
        define the GCC and LD of the target machine
        define the compiler flags CFLAGS
        modify to meet your need.
        ** Build for being controlled by NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant wext functions
           Please set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'.
           => #>cd wpa_supplicant-x.x
           => #>./wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d
        ** Build for being controlled by WpaSupplicant with Ralink Driver
           Please set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n'.
           => #>cd wpa_supplicant-0.5.7
           => #>./wpa_supplicant -Dralink -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d

Any help please?
Maybe there is an easy way to install?

Ok so I could compile the drivers by using zypper and installing the kernel sources
since it still wouldn’t compile at this point I went checking the path to the souces
there was a broken link so I changed the path in the makefile and voila

Glad to hear. Congratulations.

I am facing some problems with same wireless adapter. It’s using rt2800pci driver by default. I also wanted to install rt3090pci driver. Can you please explain me the steps to do so? I am completely new to linux, so please help me out. Also please tell me about how to use the ‘zypper’??
