    Default Problems compiling and installing RT73 Drivers

    I've tried to install RT73 driver 1.1.0 like suggested by Shaman. But with this results:

    bt ~ # mkdir rt73
    bt ~ # lzm2dir rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0.lzm ./rt73
    bt ~ # cd rt73
    bt rt73 # cd module
    bash: cd: module: No such file or directory
    bt rt73 # cd Module
    bt Module # make
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    *** Module rt73.ko built successfully
    bt Module # make install
    *** Install module in /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/extra ...
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build SUBDIRS=/root/rt73/Module modules_install
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [modules_install] Error 2

    Why? :'(. Seems i can't make anything with success!
    And the same if i try with 2.0.1:

    The same if i want to install the 2.0.1 driver:

    bt ~ # wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_...-2.0.1.tar.bz2
    --13:49:55-- http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_...-2.0.1.tar.bz2
    => `rt73-k2wrlz-2.0.1.tar.bz2'

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

    So, i've updated Aircrack and i have the 2.0.1 support in airdriver-ng. I've tried to install the 31 with deleting all old rt73 driver before. But with this result:

    bt ~ # airdriver-ng install 31
    Driver "Ralink rt73 (legacy)" specified for installation.
    Kernel headers missing!
    Failed to install the driver.
    Look through "/var/log/airdriver" for errors.

    Please, help me. With 2.0.0 provided in BT3 i can't do a good fake auth. I try with the command, but i can't associate with no router. With an atheros pcmcia it works (time ago with my old laptop). Now, with new laptop with an usb dongle it not works.

    Hope you can help me.

    Have you downloaded the kernel sources from the backtrack wiki
    hxxp://backtrack.offensive-security.com/index.php/Main_Page

    replace the (XX) with (tt) and go there download kernel.lzm
    then in command line
    cd into the directory
    lzm2dir kernel.lzm /

    Yes, with this result:

    bt ~ # lzm2dir kernel.lzm/

    Convert .lzm compressed module back into directory tree
    usage: /usr/bin/lzm2dir source_file.lzm existing_output_directory

    .....

    I've copied the kernel.lzm into /usr/bin directory. I've digited the command before and it have worked. But now? What i have to do?
