RutilT compilation problem on Suse11.0

Since the drivers (rt2x00 2.0.14) that ship with SuSE11.0 give me no statisfaction because of slowness and unstable connections I tried the legacy RT2500 driver from CSV. I have an Hercules card by the way which I used successfully in my previous SuSE10.1 setup.
I nevertheless managed to compile the module rt2500.ko from your project and load it successfully.

Now I'm trying to compile RutilT and after tackeling the memcpy errors (missing include files) I now stumble upon this error

Can any of the authors help with this?
In the meantime I fiddled around with the SuSE network configuration and managed to get the card working with WEP Shared Key. Is it not possible to use WAP-PSK with this driver?

Thanks for any reply,

I have uploaded a new version, which should fix these errors. Notify me in this thread if you run into any further issue.

Hi Romain,

Thanks for fixing this!
Compilation went OK, just a few warnings about "suggest parentheses around && within ||".
I've attached a nice snapshot ...
Keep up the good work,
