Even though I am using 32-bit Maverick, I think these steps could work on 64-bit as well, as I was seeing the same issues reported in that thread (able to build and install but unable to connect to any network).
    I am having a problem applying the patches. This is what I get:

    Code:
    $ patch -p0 < rt5390sta-2.4.0.4-config.patch
    
    patching file Makefile
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 286.
    Hunk #2 FAILED at 333.
    2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej
    patching file os/linux/config.mk
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 108.
    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file os/linux/config.mk.rej
    what is going on?

    This is what is in the .rej file:

    Code:

    You need to run the command from the directory that the source and makefiles are in, and give a relative path to the patches.

    As an aside (and I posted this in the other thread too), has anyone had success pairing bluetooth devices whith this card? Syslog shows that it goes into discovery, but it won't pick up any discoverable devices.

    Can you (mrmagos and spaceharrier) confirm that it works good?
    Do you never lose the connection as someone reported in the other thread?

    Thank you!

    (I have a HP G62 and I'm going to install Ubuntu asap)

    I've had it working for a few weeks, no issues with dropped connections. Seems to work at least as well as Windows now.

    Any chance one of you that has already applied the patches and gotten the code to compile correctly could make a zip file of the patched source code available?

    Patching code may not be a very difficult task but there are many of us that don't have much experience with the process. A link would be greatly appreciated.

    For anyone else that doesn't want to take on the challenge of patching these files, I have uploaded a patched version of the RT5390 drivers to my web-server. The patches are the ones that are from the opensuse server that have been mentioned previously in this thread. You can access them here.

    http://barkmunchers.com/dm1z/RT.tar.gz

    Note that, when I applied the patches, I renamed the patch files to numerical file names to make it easier to run the patch commands. I only mention this because when you extract the files, you will see something like 1.patch, 2.patch, etc... instead of the long file names that the patch files were originally named. Since the files have already patched, there is no need to anything with these files.

    So I download your files and all that is left to do is the following?

    7. Copy manually the kernel module to your modules directory.
    sudo cp ./os/linux/rt5390sta.ko /lib/modules/2.6.35-25-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

    8. Edit /etc/modules to add the line 'rt5390sta'

    9. Reboot and find your network SSID. It may be possible that you need to restart the network manager with 'sudo restart network-manager'

    Also what if I don't have 2.6.35-25-generic? I have -22 and -28?

    Re: HP dm1z Ralink 5390 driver problems

    This still isn't working for me and after I install drivers for the 5390 my system hangs whenever I click the wireless icon.

    How is this solved when so many people seem to still be having trouble?

    Also that patching thing makes no sense. Can someone write it for a complete linux noob.

    are you sure you're using the correct driver for your hardware?

    this works perfectly on the dm1z with the device id Ralink Device 539f

    maybe you have something slightly different in your box

    check with lspci
