RT3290 compiling failes

Postby vis.15 on Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:04 am

Hi, am running Linux Mint 14 64-bit. I have the RT3290 1814:3290 wireless card. I've read in several places that I should download the driver, compile and install. Though, when I try to compile the driver, I get this:

make: *** [LINUX] Error 2


I tried this method also: http://askubuntu.com/questions/240553/h ... b-firmware. So now my kernel is 3.8.5-030805-generic.
Before I updated the kernel I compiled and installed the driver, but I kept getting kernel panics, so I modprobe -r rt3290sta.

I'm at a lost on getting my wireless working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

See this link.

See this also.

However, the easiest way to install the driver would be to find a .deb file and use dpkg -i. As in...
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i filename.deb

The first link is the link I was referring too in the original post. I've tried everything in the second link too. I wish there was a package file.
