I have absolutley no linux experience "really only as much as a newb " so as a pc dev of drivers i wanted to read the makefile and noticed it was not looking in the right directories for some reason and was missing Module.symvers in my /usr/src/linux when compiling the first time; i do know a few things unix so i used:

Code:
locate Module.symvers
cp "dir without quotes where found" /usr/src/linux
I tried changing the following in the makefile with after using locate to locate some of the requirements of the makefile

Code:
LINUX_SRC =/lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build
to
LINUX_SRC =/usr/src/linux
and below it:

Code:
LINUX_SRC =/lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
to
LINUX_SRC =/usr/src/linux/drivers/net/wireless
ran
Code:
make
make install
modprobe rt5370sta
and now it works in Wicd after changing the preferences for wlan0 to Ra0 I can connect and it works
