Also, you can instruct compat-drivers to make one driver through ./driver-select, but doing two drivers at once is not possible. You'll need to build the whole package (use ./scripts/driver-select restore to revert the selection of alx only) and then load alx and rtl8723ae.
On a multicore system you can speed up the compilation by doing make -j4 instead of make (4 on a quad-core system, use whatever number suits your computer). That way all cores of the CPU are used to compile the drivers including the ones you don't need.
So how about a script that can make each driver individually, then install them? And yes, I do have a 4 core, thanks for the tip.
The reason I ask about the script is I like to play with different distros on my computer, and I am sure I will have to do this a lot. It would be cool to have a little package on a usb or what not, with a script that I can run as soon as I fire it up with the new install. I will have to look up how to write a script. (used to making bat files).
EDIT: How do you know that driver name/number? I just wonder what I could search by to find it, that way I won't be as much of an idiot.
