DKMS based kernel modul for Asix AX88179 USB ethernet adapter

*Note*: It's neither official Ubuntu nor official Asix package.

Kernel module for Asix AX88179 chipset based USB ethernet adapters.

Asix provides driver, here I'm just packing it into a deb package. The original Asix driver is already in the mainline kernel 3.9 (and above), but Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise), 12.10 (Quantal), 13.04 (Raring) are still using older kernels, so you have to install this driver. (Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy) based on Linux kernel 3.11, the driver is there out of the box)

The package is based on DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support), it contains the source code (that's why it's architecture independent) and complie it for your kernel. I tested it on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise), but theoritically it should work on any debian based distribution.
