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.

Author != Power User

A "Power User" would have no problems googling for a howto to help out with the kernel compilation procedure, and would probably also know that ubuntu is based on debian, so it would be worth looking up a debian specific howto (like the one at newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/system/kernel-pkg.html). The only problem I had was that the the howto doesn't tell you to build an initrd image, but adding the '--initrd' flag to make-kpkg's arguments list isn't really that hard, is it? I'm currently happily running on 2.6.12.

I also have trouble comprehending why the author had so many more issues with setting up DVD support than he did setting up mp3 support - following sets of instructions from the same guide (ubuntuguide.org), that were (for me anyhow) just as easy to follow as each other.
