I'll try looking for that. Out of curiosity, are there ever distro specific builds of these drivers that don't need all that?...

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sometimes you can get the .deb files (for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint distributions) and use apt-get to install them, or .rpm files (for Red Hat distributions) to install with yum. However, if these aren't available, then you will have to build the package from source, which sometimes may not work because of system dependencies that you don't have. Usually these problems can be overcome, not not always trivially.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
