Re: Ralink rt2500, can't load module



No, that is not it. I no longer have the book mark, but it was in the
support forums (vichu is the user name). I cannot remember which team
member was reading my comments. They fixed up the USB part but didn't
fix up the module_param stuff. Basically, in newer kernels, this has
changed and the latest one now has depricated the older method. instead
of "i" or what not for type it is int. Beyond that, I cannot remember
what the changes were.
