hi all,
has anyone actually tried to compile and use this driver on PPC (mac mini, to be exact)?
it compiles with a few bruteforce hacks :lol: , but modprobe hangs on module load :?, see dmesg output below

it appears that quite a lot 802.11g usb sticks use rt2570 chipset, for a complete list see here.
mine is belkin f5d7050, works fine in OSX, like it, because AFAIK anything zd1211 chipset based has no drivers for OSX yet.

thanks,
shpokas

Hello,

I saw at the RT2500 Linux drivers project, http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page that Ralink provided the documentation of the RT2571 (aka RT2500USB) to these developers, so we may now wait some weeks (of months) to obtain a native, open source linux driver 8)
