Sorry for bringing up a such old thread. I've bought this super cheap wifi dongle (148f:760b Ralink) and I tried to use it on my pi but the drivers didn't compile on the current raspbian version (3.18.11+ #776)

I spent the whole evening trying to combine the guides I found on the internet but the goddamn thing does not "make". I hope someone here has an already compiled updated driver or patch.
You should be able to get it working using the commands

I am assuming in step 24 is cd ~/src.
Step 25 is not working for me, it says

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Can anyone help me, please?

Edit: I got it! Step 24 is cd mt7601/src
BTW, step 11 there is a "~/" missing, before the src

Re: Dynamode USB Wifi Dongle issues

Hi,

I have built the porjo mt7601 driver for RasPi 2 kernel version 4.0.5-v7+ successfully following some steps that I have read in several posts in this forum and somewhere else. Here they are:

Code: Select all

[email protected] ~/src/mt7601/src $ uname -rsv
Linux 4.0.5-v7+ #797 SMP PREEMPT Sat Jun 20 02:03:05 BST 2015
In order to do so, I have taken the following steps following http://va3paw.com/2014/03/16/hsmm-mesh- ... /#more-629:

Code: Select all

##save current .config from /proc/config.gz
zcat /proc/config.gz > ~/old.config

##update system
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo rpi-update
sudo reboot 
Install gcc 4.8 https://somewideopenspace.wordpress.com ... pi-wheezy/

Code: Select all

##install gcc 4.8
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
##Change content to

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
# Source repository to add
deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free rpi

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free rpi
# Source repository to add
deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free rpi
##Add preferences file

sudo nano /etc/apt/preferences
##and insert

Package: *
Pin: release n=wheezy
Pin-Priority: 900
Package: *
Pin: release n=jessie
Pin-Priority: 300
Package: *
Pin: release o=Raspbian
Pin-Priority: -10

Code: Select all

##update package list

sudo apt-get update
##Install gcc/g++ 4.8 from jessie repositories

sudo apt-get install -t jessie gcc-4.8 g++-4.8
##To remove gcc/g++ alternative configuration (if there is any, there is none by default)

sudo update-alternatives --remove-all gcc 
sudo update-alternatives --remove-all g++
##Install alternatives

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.6 20
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.8 50
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.6 20
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.8 50
##Now 4.8 is your default compiler. You can verify it by

sudo gcc --version
## make a src directory
mkdir ~/src
cd ~/src
## download linux kernel code
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.git
sudo ln -s ~/src/linux /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
cd linux

## test kernel sources
make mrproper
cp ~/old.config .config
cp .config .config.org
sed -i 's/^CONFIG_CROSS_COMPILE.*/CONFIG_CROSS_COMPILE=""/' .config
make modules_prepare

## download module symbols to avoid recompiling kernel from sources; note that Module7.symvers is renamed to Module.symvers
wget https://raw.github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/master/extra/Module7.symvers -O Module.symvers
##download the porjo driver and compile it
cd ~/src/
git clone https://github.com/porjo/mt7601.git
cd mt7601/src
make
sudo insmod os/linux/mt7601Usta.ko

Yes, I have drivers available for all versions of Raspbian 3.18 and 4.0

You can download and install the driver for 4.0.7-v7+ using commands

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/mt7601-4.0.7-v7-801.tar.gz
tar xzf mt7601-4.0.7-v7-801.tar.gz
./install.sh
The ./install.sh command will install the driver and some other files it needs to work.

The output from command uname -rsv on your Pi shows the kernel version as 4.0.7+.

The driver you have downloaded and installed if for the Pi 2B using kernel 4.0.7-v7+. Note the "-v7" in the download filename.

Use commands

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/mt7601-4.0.7-801.tar.gz
tar xzf mt7601-4.0.7-801.tar.gz
./install.sh
to download and install the correct driver. NOTE: No "-v7" in the filename!

How can I compile necessary packages for specific adafruit kernel adafruit/adafruit-raspberrypi-linux?

It is the only way to get PiTFT 3.5 working on raspberry and I want to have wifi enabled as well.

Thanks for the information.
I wonder, what's the use of getting the old kernel and the old module? Now we have working module for the current kernel.
What was the "current kernel" version at time of writing this?

You need to create a symlink to your kernel source like

sudo ln -s /home/pi/src/linux /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build

./install.sh
The ./install.sh command will install the driver and some other files it needs to work.

I have my RPI and wifi module wirking thaks to MrEngman, but the problem is that I cannot set it to AP mode. I've being searching and it's said that this dongle can't do that, but there is also another driver that allows that. How can I achive it?

Stop running rpi-update, it's not a good idea unless you want to be on the leading edge kernel / firmware and know how to reverse the damage that rpi-update can do when you get something that doesn't work.

To get Mr Engman's driver for 4.0.9+ #807 use

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/mt7601-4.0.9-807.tar.gz

Yes

tar xzf mt7601-4.1.4-v7-808.tar.gz
./install.sh
Check uname -a on your Pi against the download filename, then if you update you can make the driver filename for an updated driver whenever required.
