    Please post your hardware specs. Is there any reason for not using the binary drivers that are in the repositories?

    Re: 12.10 64bit

    It's not a matter of a 64 bit install or a 32 bit install. In 12.04.2 or later you have to install the generic linux headers. I will try to update the wiki at the link given in a prior post sometime in the next two hours. When I'm done, I'll edit this post and let you know which section to look at for my recommendation.

    EDIT:

    OK. I've updated the wiki. My suggestion is to use section 2.1. Pay special attention to 2.1.4, which is critical for installation on 12.10.

    Cheers!
