    install rum(4) in kernel

    We have a corega cg-wlusb2go wireless key.

    From the manpage i understand that "rum(4)" supports it.

    However, i need to compile it in the kernel and for that i need to put lines into the kernel config file.... Can somebody give me a hint as to where to start?

    Im not at all newbie but compiling the kernel always sounds so serious to me...

    Where may we download and examine rum(4)? Isn't this supported by rt73usb? Can you please post:
    Code:

    This is supposed to work with the built-in module rt73usb.
    chili@LAPTOP40:~$ modinfo rt73usb | grep 18C5
    alias: usb:v18C5p0002d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*
    If you do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt73usb
    iwconfig
    Do you have a wireless interface?

    thanks! It almost worked with the installed 8.10 but it didnt get past wireless security. With the live CD 9.10 I managed though. Do I have to give the iwconfig at each boot?

    We're relying on the wireless of our neighbours who gave their password, so its kind of cool if we can do the config without a cable connected. Ill reinstall to 9.10 and then I guess it'll be golden.

    How did you see from the USB-id that its supported by RT-73? And do we then use the RUM or not at all?

    Re: install rum(4) in kernel

    If it works and connects with rt73usb, then you don't need RUM. You shouldn't have to do iwconfig; Network Manager should take care of that for you. If the module rt73usb doesn't load automatically, we can amend /etc/modules.

    I connected the pci-id to rt73usb by Googling it. http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/RT73USB.html especially see:
    vendor: 18c5 ("AMIT"), product: 0002 ("CG-WLUSB2GO")
    Just because something is supposed to work doesn't mean it will work correctly. Try it and let us and the searchers know.

    Re: install rum(4) in kernel

    ah yes, that makes sense.

    It works in 9.10 w/o iwconfig, automatically. So problem fixed! No clue why it didnt work in 8.10, but well.

    Now only a small problem with grub 2 in 9.10
