So, the dongle is not visible to what???? It's driver?
It's driver module is loaded. To wit:
$ lsmod | grep rt5572sta
rt5572sta 810817 0
Notice the driver module has no client drivers attached to it (as
indicated by the trailing 0).
PS: The driver source code does not name the driver module as
rt3072.ko , So, it is not clear to me if it actually built a driver
for that chipset.
The kernel sources, in
tristate "Ralink rt27xx/rt28xx/rt30xx (USB) support"
depends on USB
This adds support for rt27xx/rt28xx/rt30xx wireless chipset
family. Supported chips: RT2770, RT2870 & RT3070, RT3071 & RT3072
When compiled as a module, this driver will be called
So, it sounds like your compile didn't actually compile the correct
driver, since yours is called rt5572sta. Not sure why, but that would
explain why it didn't help with recognizing the RT3072 device.
I'm also not sure if the stock Fedora kernel turns on this module. You
could check /boot/config-[your kernel version] to see if
config RT2800USB is selected as a module or to be built in.
