    Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Hello Ubuntu Community,

    I am using Ubuntu 12.10.

    I was able to download and unzip: 2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO

    The file is sitting on my desktop.

    I did:

    cd 2011*
    emacs -nw os/linux/config.mk

    I have changed the lines to look like this:

    # Support Wpa_Supplicant
    # i.e. wpa_supplicant -Dralink
    HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y


    # Support Native WpaSupplicant for Network Maganger
    # i.e. wpa_supplicant -Dwext
    HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y

    I closed and saved. Then I tried:

    sudo su
    make

    This was the error I got:

    root@SJ:/home/jgomez2/Desktop/2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO# make

    make: *** /lib/modules/3.5.0-18-generic/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [LINUX] Error 2

    I understand that there is no directory there, but I dont imagine that is truly the source of the problem.

    Can someone help please?

    Oh, yes, indeed, it is! It's clear evidence you don't have the prerequisites installed. With an ethernet connection, please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
    Then try again:
    Code:
    make
    sudo make install

    Should I then try modprobe rt5390sta? Or would a simple restart suffice?

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Ok so i did
    Code:
     sudo modprobe rt5390sta
    It is now up and running. Is there anything you suggest to do in order to make this a permanent fix? When I had 12.04 my WLAN would work until I would download a new release (or patch or whatever the term is) and then I would have to do the steps all over again. If no, thank you for your time and prompt replies.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    When a new kernel version, also known as linux-image, is installed by Update Manager, you will need to recompile for the later kernel version:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe rt5390sta
    Glad it's working!

    it appears to be a similar problem as before with the missing directory...

    Yes, indeed, and the fix is the same:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic

    jgomez2@SJ:~/Desktop/2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO$ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic

    build-essential is already the newest version.
    linux-headers-generic is already the newest version.
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    libjasper1:i386 libjbig0:i386 libjpeg-turbo8:i386 libjpeg8:i386 linux-headers-3.5.0-17
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.


    I then tried make with and got the same error.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Please reboot. Next, post:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    uname -a
    arch
    sudo dpkg -s linux-headers-`uname -r`
    Those backticks are on the left side of my US keyboard on the same key with ~.
