Cannot on wifi in Android ported on BeagleBoard

 I've successfully ported android 2.3 onto BB.
However wifi cannot be switched on and doing a netcfg shows that there
are only lo and USB, both which are down too.
I'm using a Belkin G Wireless Network Adapter which depends on rt73.
What I'm confused about is how do you compile the driver needed for
it.
rt73 created.
How are the folders "/system/lib/modules" and "/system/etc/firmware"
made?
Sorry for asking a lot of questions. I'm quite new to all these...
Can someone help me out with these issues?
Thanks.

 [+beagle,rowboat list for support]

did u referred 
 http://www.projectkennel.com/wiki/index.php?title=Getting_Started_with_Android_for_your_BeagleBoard 
?
it have steps for donut (older), but if you follow similar steps,
should be ok i guess.

for latest code, you can get RT73 driver from RT site
 http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2 

it depends on what kernel you use,., and which defconfig you have
picked after that.,


do simple search like below, if you have RT73 support in your codebase.,

deva@deva-ubunt:/data/build/kernel_omap4/omap$ find . | grep -i rt73
./drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt73usb.c
./drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt73usb.h
deva@deva-ubunt:/data/build/kernel_omap4/omap$ grep -iR rt73 arch/arm/configs
arch/arm/configs/zeus_defconfig:CONFIG_RT73USB=m
deva@deva-ubunt:/data/build/kernel_omap4/omap$
deva@deva-ubunt:/data/build/kernel_omap4/omap$
deva@deva-ubunt:/data/build/kernel_omap4/omap$ grep -R CONFIG_RT73USB
./drivers/net/wireless/*
./drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/Makefile:obj-$(CONFIG_RT73USB)
         += rt73usb.o


those were part of build and FS creation procedure.,
you can refer our steps at
 http://omappedia.org/wiki/WiLink_Connectivity_Project to get an 
overview of (drivers, usersidecode, configuration files, how to put in
file system, etc)

 gt; did u 

Yes, I followed the build patches.
I have rt2x00 folder in my wireless but I don't know which one to
choose in menuconfig...


I've already encounter errors at Build WLAN Driver >_>
What am I supposed to link to regarding this 'export PATH=<path to
compiler>:$PATH'
I don't have arm-none-linux-gnueabi- so I downloaded it.
Nothing is compiled when I cd into '/system/wlan/ti/wilink_6_1/
platforms/os/linux' so I tried '/system/wlan/ti/sta_dk_4_0_4_32'
instead.
However, I get the following errors after some successful
compilations:
"""

 Ok... I could compile '/system/wlan/ti/wilink_6_1/platforms/os/linux'
after 'make prepare' in kernel but the compilation will stop with the
following errors:

I've check my /external/wpa_supplicant/.config,
'CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT=y' and 'CONFIG_WIRELESS=y' are set.

2. gps crashes the application in Htc Magic

Hi,

Im developing an app that uses the GPS in my Magic (OS 1.6). The app
starts to receive signal from the gps and suddently it breaks.

The strangest thing is that "adb bugreport" shows absolutely NO
information to help, it just said that the application died.

Is there a known bug in gps for this device? Any other suggestion is
welcome.
