    Default rt73 drivers / "/lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build"

    Hi I have just bought a linskys WUSB54GC wireless adapter I was`advised (by a freind and this site) that this would be upto running all of the features of BT3 provided I install the rt73 drivers.
    A problem has come up in that when I attempt to build the driver :
    Code:
    bt ~ # cd rt73-k2wrlz-2.01/Module
    bt Module # make
    I get a message saying: /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build does not exist. I used the file browser program to navigate to /2.6.21.5 and sure enough it says build appears to no longer exist (does display a file type icon with a padlock on top though).
    I tried to create such a directory but no joy. After this I searched this forum for help and found a post advising me to locate something called kernel.lzm. I navigated to "/" and ran a search:
    Code:
    bt / # find / -name kernel.lzm
    this returned no results. I have done a HD installation but I've tried this on the live cd aswell with no luck.
    can someone help pls
    thx

    PS
    I seem to be missing something is it possible I have a bad copy of BT3?

    Hi, everybody!

    I have the same problem with Linksys wusb54gc!
    With all versions of drivers even with 3.0.3(tried all previous versions from 2.0.0).

    After searching the forum, I followed an advice to install kernel sources(lzm2dir / kernel.lzm) and then got this error after make command in Module directory:

    bt Module # make
    /bin/sh: line 0: [: -lt: unary operator expected
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5'
    make: Entering an unknown directory
    make: *** empty variable name. Stop.
    make: Leaving an unknown directory
    make[1]: *** [_module_/tmp/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1/Module] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5'
    rt73.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1


    What is the problem?

    Best Regards
    A

    Can anybody give a suggestion according to explained situation??

    Thx

    try this, this is a new lib.lzm module that goes into your "bt3/base" directory.
    it includes the 3.01 rt73 driver, (insted of 3.00 thats comes with bt3)
    I know that thers newer ones but this one works the best I think.

    works perfect with spoonwe2 and airoscript.sh

    Thanks for an advice micked!
    I've downloaded a module you've kindly provided and tried to install lib.lzm and got this output:

    bt / # lzm2dir lib.lzm /
    write_file: failed to create file //lib/ld-2.5.so, because Text file busy


    Where could be the rub??

    this is a base module, you can´t lzm2dir it, you have to ad this to your iso (and remove the old lib.lzm from the iso)
    1. ad this module to the image (iso) and make a fresh install to your hdd or
    2. ad this module to the image (iso) and run it as a live cd.
