Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "My verdict: Even in the relatively slick Ubuntu variation, Linux is still too rough around the edges for the vast majority of computer users", says Mossberg. Among others, he complains about one of the things I did too when I was writing my stream of Ubuntu reviews back in Spring.

Update your kernel, and you'll see what has to be done then, you have to reinstall everything that uses a kernel module, even if using an updated kernel from official repos.

I've upgraded my kernel in PCLOS twice in the last year, and it's always been completely painless, as I always have DKMS installed (indeed, it's set up that way by default in PCLOS, not sure about other distros). the first boot to the new kernel takes an additional minute or two while it installs all the extra kernel modules, and that's all there is to it.
