Re: How do I install this module?
The files you show in the archive is the source code for the kernel module (driver) itself. We will compile it before installing.
Firstly, I am assuming the "hanvon-20111102.tgz" file is in your "Downloads" folder.
Open a terminal (Click on the Unity dash on the top-left hand corner of the screen and type in 'terminal').
Then, enter this in.
It should (according to the readme at least) show up if you run
#Create a clean folder to extract and compile the driver
mkdir -p hanvon_drivers/build
mv hanvon-20111102.tgz hanvon_drivers
tar xvf hanvon-20111102.tgz
mv hanvon/* build
#Install gcc and other tools needed to build kernel module from source
sudo apt-get install build-essential
#type in password at this point, it will not show up
#Insert module in kernel
sudo insmod ./hanvon.ko
btw, don't worry about it if you ever post in the wrong section. Just click on the "report abuse" button on the left hand side of the screen (for me, I see yours at the bottom left of your post), and ask for someone to move it

Reason: didn't notice subdirectory...
Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.
