Hi,

Sorry you found things confusing.

Unfortunately the drivers I have compiled are for the RPI Raspbian OS images and the output you show for uname indicates you are not using a basic Raspbian image but possibly BerryBoot which the drivers I have compiled will not work with.

The driver used by the wifi module, USB id 148F:761A, you are trying to use is the Ralink mt7610u driver.

I would suggest you access the wiki or forum for BerryBoot, if that is the kernel you are using, and ask about installing the mt7610u driver there.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Thanks MrEngman for getting back to me s quickly.

I am running the full version of Raspbian OS so I do not see how BerryBoot is causing an issue. It is from my understanding that BerryBoot simply allows me to dual boot my system. For example I have Raspbian installed along with Kodi and RetroPie. I want the ablitity to be able to boot to the the different OS for the different projects that I am attempting to do.

Is there a different application that you would recommend that I run instead of BerryBoot that would allow me to dual boot and allow me to install the wifi dongle?

BerryBoot has its own Kernel which is used by all installed Operating Systems, therefore it is not the same as the current Raspbian Stretch....

....BerryBoot is the only multi-boot available, though NooBS/ PiNN which is an installer / chooser allows selecting various Operating Systems on start up:

It sounds as if I should have attempted to preform the install under BerryBoot and not within the Raspbian OS. Is this correct?

BerryBoot is a multi-boot manager it is not an Operating System par-se...

As I already stated the Kernel in BerryBoot is not the same as the Kernel in Raspbian.

Thanks for the clarification I will look into running multiple OS with Noobs.

Hi Dimension02000,

Looks like @Fruitoftheloom has explained the issue using BerryBoot.

Using NOOBS or PINN will allow you to install multiple OS's and choose which one to run at boot. They install the basic Raspbian OS's and others you may want to install but may need an internet connection, possibly wired, to install more than just Raspbian. It has been years since I tried NOOBS and I've never tried PINN so exactly what you need to do to install more than one OS I am unsure.

They install the RPI Raspbian images so you will then be able to install the wifi drivers I compile for Raspbian.
