I tryed to compile the latest driver from the CVS, and I get this [code2o3tj8cz]eric@x1-6-00-13-8f-c2-af-9e:~> cd ~/Desktop/rt2570-1.1.0-b2

Hello mre521,

Like most people, that have problems with compiling, you are trying the beta version (1.1.0-b2) that is quite old now instead of the cvs version.

As it is really a FAQ, you could have save time for everyone reading this post IMPORTANT READ BEFORE POSTING!!![/url1hcnshc1] and/or making use of the magical [url=]Search Button[/url1hcnshc1].
