I know rt2x00 is not yet officially in the kernel, but that there is source available from serialmonkey. But does it work? or would legacy drivers from either Ralink or serialmonkey, either rt73 or rt2500 (2570?) I couldn't even get rt2500 to compile a few days ago.

I got errors like "compiling for big-endian machine" etc.

Has anyone made this work on their PPC/G4? Thoughts?

thanks

PS I posted a similar question August 1 on the Networking and Security forum, and have gotten just 101 views and zero! answers...maybe this ain't possible?

IIRC it does work, those are warnings rather than errors? It's been a while but I'm sure I had my usb rt2570 based wifi device working.
