Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

Custom kernel

I switched to Ubuntu three months ago. When I bought a new 512mb stick (for a 1.5gb total), I had to recompile the kernel in order to allow more than 1gb (which is the default in Ubuntu). The only hard thing was compiling the nVidia modules. But I did in around two hours, and got a perfect system working. Unluckily, in my last recompilation I forgot to add some USB modules, and now everytime I umount my flash USB disk I need to reboot... will be fixing that soon.
