I've got a NIC (Asus XG C100C) that is not properly supported in the current Linux kernel. Hence, I installed driver which I compiled from source. Every time when the kernel is updated, I have to reinstall it and copy the
/lib/modules/<KERNELVERSION>/ and use
insmod to install it.
I assume the driver is compatible with most minor kernel updates/patches. Is there any way to copy/install the driver (atlantic.ko) somewhere else, so that the kernel update procedure is installing it for new kernel versions automatically?
- OS: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS (Xenial Xerus)
- Kernel: 4.4.0-140-generic
- NIC-Driver: "atlantic.ko" (from ASUS-Website, Release Date 26-01-2017)
- NIC: Asus XG C100C
