ACX100/ACX111 wireless network drivers source

This package provides the source code of the Linux drivers for wireless network cards using TI ACX100/ACX111 chips. This includes DWL-[G]520+ PCI, DWL-[G]650+ CardBus, GL-2422MP mini-PCI, DWL-120+ USB, USR5410, etc. See for information about your wireless device. In order to compile the kernel modules you need the kernel sources (or the kernel-headers for the kernel-image packages from Debian). For compile instructions look into usr/share/doc/acx100-source/README.Debian or simply use the module-assistant utility. Please also note that the ACX100/111 chips need a firmware to be operational. You can get this firmware from the Microsoft Windows or from homepage.

More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
