    Default compat-wireless driver issue

    Is seems like it does not matter what driver i install, i get the same error each time.

    I tryed some new version of the compat-wireless driver and then installed some later version beacause they didnt work.

    I have been using this good guide on aircrack-ng forum TUTORIAL: Installing driver RTL8187, r8187, rt2800usb on Ubuntu Jaunty and Lucid

    Jano's "patched-jaunty" driver i had working before my BT4 crashed and i had to reinstall but now i cant get it working...

    I have tryed to google and i read something about "remove backports" but "dpkg -l | grep linux-backport " dont find any packets so i dont know how the c-w drivers that comes with BT4 is installed and if you can remove the old ones....

    @bt:~# modprobe rt2800usb
    WARNING: Error inserting cfg80211 (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format

    rt2x00usb: Unknown symbol ieee80211_free_hw
    rt2x00usb: Unknown symbol ieee80211_alloc_hw

    I hope we can solve this, im already behind in time-schedule on my schoolproject with this.


    Just wanted to tell that i had to reinstall BT4 to get rid of that error.
    I followed the tutorial, except i skipped the
    apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential make patch gettext gcc python-psyco autoconf subversion tcl8.5 openssl libssl-dev libnl1 libnl-dev cracklib-runtime python-scapy macchanger-gtk
    And now its working..
