Hello there,

searching the forum I found some other people experiencing this, but nothing really helped me.

I'm trying to compile today's (I've tried some older ones I still had, didn't work either) rt2500 pci cvs snapshot.

First of all, the driver works perfectly for me using debian. It worked with kernel 2.6.18 and still does with 2.6.24 ! (amd64)

Right now I'm trying to get it work with gentoo kernel 2.6.23-r8 and receive the following error

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.23-gentoo-r8'
CC [M] /usr/src/Module/rtmp_main.o
/usr/src/Module/rtmp_main.c: In Funktion »RT2500_probe«:

make[2]: *** [/usr/src/Module/rtmp_main.o] Fehler 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.23-gentoo-r8'
rt2500.ko failed to build!
make: *** [debug] Fehler 1

Just in case some translation

/usr/src/Module/rtmp_main.c327Errorr »struct net_device« has no member named »wireless_handlers«
make[2] *** [/usr/src/Module/rtmp_main.o] Error 1
make[1] *** [_module_/usr/src/Module] Error 2

Thanks for any help )

Okay I'm sorry I think I might have missconfigured something in the kernel. GOnna rebuild it and then see... will check back with here then ;)
