I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit on my desktop. I got Ralink Corp RT3060 ( rt3562sta ) Wireless device. There was no proper support for this driver for ubuntu on their official site. So I have done some patches to install, which can be found here

Every hour, i get the following error

  • Panic Mode occurred , switching back to text console.

Error screen:

Please help! i'm tired of restarting my machine!

What, exactly, did you patch the driver? This could help identify the problem. – DeoxNa Nov 15 '11 at 6:22
Why are you that sure that the wireless driver is causing the problem? Have you further output in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages? Finally maybe you can do the following instead of rebooting in the console: sudo initctl restart gdm – Michael K Nov 15 '11 at 7:45
I just followed the instructions given on that blog. That's it! – Madhukarah Nov 15 '11 at 7:52
If I deactivate this wireless driver, then my system will be okay. – Madhukarah Nov 15 '11 at 8:13
Have you tried using ndiswrapper? I have a similar PCI wi-fi card (D-link DWL520+), which was discontinued 5 years ago, and is working perfectly with ndiswrapper. – DeoxNa Nov 16 '11 at 0:32
