Hi there
I use DSL on a Toshiba 460CDT.
Got a USB wireless net, recognised as a Ralink 2570.
Drivers are available here and there either as tar.gz or deb packages.
dpkg -i package.deb fails and I cant compile form tar.gz (no make installed)
Is there a way I can get this compiled or deb package fixed ?
Thanks a lot

Did you enable apt(apps>tools) so you can use dpkg?

I don't see any
"tools" menu under "apps" on a right click.
Nor do I see it under the tools menu itself.
