I'm not sure if my apt-get dist-upgrade worked right or what. I was missing most/all my modules. I unpacked the linux-source-2.6.34-rc6 in /usr/src and copied the /proc/config.gz over to rebuild it.
I am now able to put the "Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870 Wireless Adapter" in monitor mode and fire up airodump-ng. But it doesn't show anything.. I had this problem with the 18.104.22.168 before I upgraded. I'm worried its a hardware failure. I had it working about a week ago on the 22.214.171.124 kernel. I'll verify its not hardware before I go any further with it.
NOTE: I am rebuilding my kernel with HID support as a module. I'm not sure how it was built with the 126.96.36.199 kernel, but that might be what is causing problems with my touch screen. But it will be a few hours before my poor little Atom will finish the build.
