    Default rt73.ko failed to build?

    i tried to install the new driver for my WUSB54GC and followed tutorials from the forum.

    but when i tried to run make command i got the following error

    Code:
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    rt73.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1

    You need the kernel headers. Just use the new BT3 Final.

    And don't forget to donate a little something
    dd if=/dev/swc666 of=/dev/wyze

    I'm getting the exact same error with BT3 Final.

    Thumbs down Same Problem

    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    rt73.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1



    As you can see, I am getting the same error. I'm not sure what this might be. I tried using rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2 and rt73-k2wrlz-2.0.1.tar.bz2 ( which is an older version that was used in the tutorial that I viewed ).

    I am using BT3-Final on a desktop that I build several months ago for SUPER CHEAP!

    Specs:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+
    MCP6PB M2+ MoBo
    3 Gigs RAM
    Bunch of hard drives
    - If you need more info than that let me know ..

    I even tried looking into that directory(/lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build) to make sure that it was there, and it is. Although 'build' is a file, not a directory which is what I expected because I do not see a file extention there.

    Any ideas ? I am downloading backtrack 2 and the pre-final of 4 as well to see if that might make a difference. Also, I am about to boot this laptop to the live disk as well to see If I can get it running on this thing.

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    You need to build the kernel source first

    Question Hmm ?

    Is that a long and complicated process ?

    I mean the drivers I have running on Ubuntu (which is installed on my HD) are working fine for packet injection
    - Also, I thought I might try the rt73 drivers on Ubuntu, and I'm getting the same error. I thought maybe I was getting it because I was running a live session...

    I would just like to aim towards getting into the WPA side of things and I know that I need these drivers to capture that lovely handshake.

    Does BT4 have the drivers I need all ready to go ? Is it worth the download even though it isn't final yet ? Pre-releases make me nervous..

    Thanks for the input!
