Unable get acx module for 2.6.31 kernel
Last modified: 2012-06-08 06:58:35 UTC
I have Sabayon 5.0 on a PC with wg311v2 Netgear wireless PCI card, which requires the acx module. This module is not available. I installed linux-sabayon-sources and tried to compile all available versions of the acx module, and I did not get a successful compile of any of them. Ndiswrapper does not work for this card. I have acx-firmware installed. I am fortunate that I did an upgrade from 4.2 on this PC, so I had a 2.6.29 kernel with the acx module available. I am using that kernel. I successfully built the acx module against that kernel using a version of acx that is no longer in the repositories. See my forum posts here http://forum.sabayonlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=18865
Thanks for help.
There is a patch here. http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2301801&group_id=75380&atid=543747
I haven't tried it yet.
Development seems dead.
Patched source is here. https://sites.google.com/site/stevosfilehideaway/Home/acx-20080210.zip
Using this source, I got a good compile against 2.6.31 kernel and my wireless card now works with this kernel.

Updated version of net-wireless/acx is being added to our repositories. Thanks for reporting.
