    Comment out PCI build in MAKE and ACX_CONFIG.H files.
    Run MAKE.
    Put acx.ko where you want it, suggest /lib/modules/kernel version/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
    Put firmware in /lib/firmware.
    Run

    depmod -ae
    

    .
    In /etc/rc.d/rc.local add

     insmod /lib/modules/[i]kernel version[/i]/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/acx.ko
    

    .
    Log out and log in.

    Works great, still get alot of :

    Hi, Thanks a lot for feedback!

    Indeed, the usb part is still the most experimental one ;)
    (you may comment that log simply out, if it's filling to much the logs).

    Cheers, Ol

    In ACX_CONFIG.H, set #define ACX_DEBUG to 0.

    Reduces ACX.KO by a tenth of a meg and shuts down most of the DMESG chatter.

    Still get:
