When running Ubuntu 12.10 (or any os with a kernel 3.5 or greater, this problem also happens in Fedora) I encounter a kernel panic after compiling and installing the latest Ralink driver for the rt5390.
My laptop is an hp dv6.6135dx.
Here's what I do:
(this works perfectly in 12.04)
Download Ralink's latest driver and rename it.
Edit /os/linux/config.mk to make sure these two below values are accurate.
tar xjvf rt.bz2.bz2
Then the compiling (after installing build-essential and linux-headers-generic of course).
I get some warnings but no errors. I then edit:
Then I get a kernel panic on reboot, I've taken a picture since I can't take a screen-shot.
Please help, I really would like to use 12.10 so I could have access to the latest AMD drivers.
