Hello,

I would like to understand how the rt73 legacy driver works,
but I think I don't have the needed background on the
technology of Ralink.

Did you wrote any technical document about your rt73 module?
Where can I found Ralink's technical specifications?

In order to understand your code I think I should build also
some generical background. I'm not totally unskilled in electronics
I made a technical high school where I specialized in electronics
and telecomunications field.
I can also write (and sometimes read) C code.

I don't know nothing about the technology of Torvald's kernel,
but I saw some guides and how-to's on the net..

Can you design for me a "learning path" in order to understand
the code of rt73 module, pointing to the right docs?

Thanks a lot,
Giovanni

No, both the legacy as the rt2x00 driver contain all information within the code.

We have specsheets but are not at liberty to redistribute them.
Basically they are quite useless, and the most interesting information can be found in the code itself.

If you want to learn more about the Linux Kernel internals you should read the books online, "Linux Kernel Development" by Robert Love is a good start. And "Linux Device Drivers" by O'Reilly is also a good book.

As for the rest, if you have any specific questions about the code itself, feel free to ask and I (and others on this forum as well) will do my best to answer it.

Thanks! Now I have a new toy to play with... I look forward to do it!

See you in few weeks )
