I find the rpm for opensuse 11.1

http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...E_11.1_Update/

and another talking about hostapd:

http://forums.opensuse.org/network-i...nt-11-1-a.html

the installation is now ok, but I still don't know how to configure
hostapd.conf to work with my card (RT2860)?

any suggestions

The error is in the spelling.
It should be rt2960sta instead of ra2860sta.

Make that change and retry.

Cheers,

R.

P.S: be sure that /lib/modules/`uname -r`/...etc
has the kernel module rt2860sta.ko
