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.

sudo apt-get install build-essentials

If not, do it.

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.
