Since I'm the one who wrote the post and filed the bug, let me confuse you a bit
more. Starting with the 2.6.33 kernel, support for the rt3090 is supposed to be
included in the rt2800pci module. I've tried the 2.6.33 kernels in rawhide, but
they don't work. The kernel tries to load the module, calls for the rt2860
firmware file, and then gives up. Ralink updated its rt3090 driver this week.
I'm hopeful it includes a fix, which will soon be incorporated into the kernel:
In the meantime, I'm still using the 2.6.32-0.63.rc8.git2.fc13 kernel. I'm not
running rawhide, just using the kernel with f12. You can still find the kernel
through koji. Please add your information to the bug. It may help to speed up
resolution of this issue.
