  2. [ubuntu] Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    This Makefile is executed by sh:
    (Although not all makefiles are)
    From the package 'make-doc'

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    A bit late to spot this, but I wonder if the problem in compiling is that you have installed a later kernel but not also installed the later Linux header files and source files to go with it? The...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    I am not sure myself, 'man make' does not say if Makefiles are BASH or SH. I just copied the format of the other lines!
    This small change gets rid of the error messages like this in...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    I am sorry, I was not clear as to what I have done to fix a similar problem, so I will try to give a full account.
    To compile this requires gcc, make, and the linux header files for the kernel in...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    Thankyou for the tip - however I finally managed to compile a working rt2860sta after trying some different things - the key was selecting
    #Support for PCI-MSI
    HAS_MSI_SUPPORT=y
    in the...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    This compat-wireless-3.3-rc1-2.tar.bz2 package does not include an RT2860 driver, only the RT2800 among others. I have not been able to compile the module from Ralink so far either. I have tried...

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Can I upgrade to 11.04 and keep Open Office?

    Thankyou for the help. Most of the time I just need something to make a few notes in, so Gedit is sufficient, unless I need to open an unusual file type. I was interested to see if there was some...

    I installed Ubuntu 10.10 in the spring. Now there is the 11.04 version available as an upgrade. I recall downloading many 10's of MB of Open Office updates only recently. I only use it on odd...
