Hi,

1st post here.

I have a TI AM1808 SOM running on a Logicpd board. I'm trying to enable the Ralink drivers in the Linux kernel I'm using (2.6.33-rc4) of course supplied by T.I. After a struggle to find the right config option that exposes all the support in menuconfig (CONFIG_MAC80211) I thought I was on the road to success. However whenever I turn on this option, rebuild the kernel, and install the modules into the fs, kernel booting always freezes at udev

===========
.......
Looking up port of RPC 100003/2 on 192.168.52.132

VFS Mounted root (nfs filesystem) on device 013.
Freeing init memory 148K
INIT version 2.86 booting
Please wait booting...
Starting udev
============

I don't even need to enable any wireless driver, as long as CONFIG_MAC80211 is enabled, booting can't get past udev. Working with NFS, if that makes a difference. Funny thing is /var/logs is completely empty so I can't check logs.

CONFIG_MAC80211 - hardware independent IEEE 802.11 networking stack

Any help would be appreciated.

thanx

Seems to work all of sudden. Something to with NFS. Restarted and it works now. However I can't get my USB wireless adapter to come up. I'll open another issue.
