Compiling rt61 driver error


When I try to compile the rt61 driver from the RaLink website I get the following error.
Code:

Does anyone know a work around to this. I'm using Slackware 12.0 with a custom 2.6.23.1 kernel. Thanks.

The rt61-1.1.0-b2 version compiles just fine with the 2.6.21.5 kernel.

Thank you. I finally got rid of my Linksys WMP54G card and replaced it with a Netgear WPN311 card. Compiles and runs flawlessly. This is the card every linux user should get.
