rt2500 with 2.6.20.3 kernel


before this kernel i used the slackware 11 extra kernel 2.6.17.13
and after installation i had to install packages from slackdvd /extra
installed the rt2500 driver for my minipci wlan card
now i compiled a new kernel, 2.6.20.3
and when i try to install the rt2500 driver again i get this error message:

You will need a development snapshot out of CVS with kernels >= 2.6.19
This is the link to the daily snapshot for rt2500: http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt2500-cvs-daily.tar.gz - use it in stead of the 1.1.ob4 release.

I've had similar errors on FC6 after upgrading to 2.6.19 kernel. I was using the release version of the 1.1.0.4b driver, but when I used the latest CVS intead it, worked a treat.
