With a bit of patching I have a mptlinux_4.22.00.00-2_all.deb

Install dkms from APT:
sudo aptitude install dkms

Fetch the drivers for RHEL5 etc. from

Unpack and unpack and unpack them. There are tar.gz in side of zip for days.
Somewhere in all that mess you will find mptlinux-
Convert that to a deb and install it:

fakeroot alien --to-deb mptlinux-
sudo dpkg -i mptlinux_4.22.00.00-2_all.deb

Due to cultural differences the source will unpack in the wrong place for Ubuntu. Make a copy in the right place.

sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/dkms/mptlinux/
cd /usr/src/mptlinux-
sudo cp -a . /var/lib/dkms/mptlinux/

Apply the patch attached to this post.

Build the dkms deb

sudo dkms build -m mptlinux -v
sudo dkms mkdeb -m mptlinux -v
