    Download the latest ACX tar:

    Untar it to a folder of your choice.  I have /home/*username*/install/acx.

    Download the "karmic" patch into that folder:

    open a terminal, cd to that folder and run this code:

        patch -p0 < acx_karmic.patch

    You can then run this code:

        make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`

    Then as Root:

        make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` modules_install

    I prefer to make an *acx* folder in

    > /lib/modules/*your kernel*/source/drivers/net/wireless

    copy the patched acx source into it then in a root terminal at

    > /lib/modules/*your kernel*/source

    run

        make oldconfig
        make
        make modules_install && make install

    This creates and installs a *your kernel*custom.

    Grub adds it to the boot list, make it *default* in MCC - Boot - Set up boot system.

    Boot into it and setup your wireless connection.  It will run on every boot with no complaints.

    This takes quite a bit of time, most of it unattended, but seems to make more reliable module for my TIACX device.
