Hi all, this is my first (successful) Linux installation, so please bear with me as I attempt to straighten all this out.
Okay, so I'm attempting to use a D-Link DWL-G122 (rev. C1) wireless adapter on Slackware 10.2, which I understand uses the Ralink RT73 driver. So far, I have successfully compiled the driver files with the updated definitions so it will properly recognize the adapter when loaded into the kernel.
The next instructions are:
5> $cp rt73.bin /etc/Wireless/RT73STA/ # copy firmware
6> $dos2unix rt73sta.dat
Two minor problems here! First, the /Wireless directory does not exist under /etc. Is there another place where this file should be put, or am I supposed to explicitly create this directory?
Secondly, Slackware does not seem to include the dos2unix program indicated. Is there another program I can use for this purpose? Apparently I just have to make sure this dat file is a binary file in Linux format (as opposed to DOS format).
Without this adapter, my box is not going to be able to connect to the network as desired. I'm not in control of the network here (I'm renting), so running a wired connection isn't an option. I can transfer files between my Windows box and the Slackware box via a USB flash drive, though.
Thanks for the help!
