Postby St1mpak on Sat Dec 01, 2012 6:12 pm

I recently bought a Rosewill wireless usb adapter for my pc running linux mint 12 (kernel 3.0), but the driver is for kernel 2.6. Is there any possible workaround to get the software to function correctly? Upon plugging in the adapter and running lsusb I get
