    Post How to compile acx 100/111 driver in Karmic (FIXED)

    I´m glad to announce that there is a patch to compile acx 100/111 driver in kernel 2.6.31
    Just follow this instructions:

    mkdir acx
    cd acx
    wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/acx...080210.tar.bz2
    tar xjvf acx-20080210.tar.bz2
    wget http://cc.oulu.fi/~rantalai/acx_karmic.patch
    patch -p0 < acx_karmic.patch
    cd acx-20080210/
    make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`

    Load de kernel module
    sudo insmod acx.ko

    And that's all folks!

    Could someone submit the patch to the Ubuntu kernel team?

    To get a patch applied, you'll need to open a bug report: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs Once the bug has been reported, then you can submit the patch and the devs will review it and apply it if possible.

    Everyone I've encountered indicates that ndiswrapper STILL works in Karmic. Try installing the ndisgtk package. After that, you may be able to get a successful response with:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    Re: How to compile acx 100/111 driver in Karmic (FIXED)

    Notbad, there are two (very) different way to use acx driver. You first tried this:

    Code:
    modprobe acx
    This is native driver. And problem is that driver is removed from Karmic (actually kernel 2.6.31, Karmic can be run on older kernel too).
    (Therefor error message was: FATAL: Module acx not found.)

    You can compile this module by yourself with instructions on first post by sechole.


    Second way is use ndiswrapper which uses driver from windows.
    apt-get install ndisgtk
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    find needed windows driver.


    dmizer, what is right package to make bug report against? Kernel? Or maybe firmware?
    name of bug: "acx kernel module removed"?

    none of your suggestions works. ive done everything i could but ndisgtk does not see my pci card: error pops oppening: we do not see any hardware or smthg and Could not find a network configuration tool.

    thats it im about to go back to 9.04 or to buy a new wireless adapter
