Well, what can I say? Linux is great. What other OS gives you the power to customize its core? Let me check…none. Well, okay, there are a few others, but it’s not common practice. And I do understand why, because it can be quite tricky business. I too have tried updating my kernel from 2.4 to 2.6 a few times, and always failed miserably. But today was different. With the help of this document, I finally managed to do everything the way it’s supposed to be done. And more. I even installed the nVidia driver, something I had never deemed necessary before. For all of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, rest assured, I don’t either. I just do what I’m told, and sometimes that does work out. And voilà, say hello to Kernel 2.6.8! I am great.
