It'll get turned on when it's no longer marked EXPERIMENTAL.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I'm having trouble compiling the driver in TCL13 x86_64. The same procedure I followed before does not work in TCL13 for some reason:

[please see attached--the forum wouldn't let me post the commands]

Any idea how to get past this error?

P.S. Why can't Santa include RT5370 support in wireless-KERNEL.tcz? I can vouch that CONFIG_RT2800USB_RT53XX=y does not break anything and results in fully functional RT5370 in both client and AP mode. Just saying.

I'd guess you need to:

"make oldconfig" using the tinycore config
enable the functionality you need using "make menuconfig"

I had already done that. Sorry for not showing all the steps. I tried to include all the steps this time (see attached).

I got it working. Upstream (kernel developers) seems to have mixed things up just for fun. Now we need a new step before the final step:

Code: [Select]
$ make modules_prepare # the new step
$ make M=drivers/net/wireless/ralink/rt2x00 modules
