    When i type:
    Code:
    make clean
    make menuconfig
    shown all usb wireless drivers (rtl8187, etc...) but if i type:

    Code:
    make clean
    make shinano_sirius_defconfig
    make menuconfig
    not shown usb wireless drivers

    Why?

    How would I go about adding support for rt5372 in the latest nethunter build? I can see the device in lsusb but it doesn't show up in ifconfig, iwconfig or airmon-ng, i suspect it need support in the kernel. Can anyone direct me in the right path?
