Single Status Update
I have just upgraded my Linux Mint 7 system to a 2.6.33 vanilla kernel with SMP and PREEMPT built in. Feels good man, I built the nvidia 195 drivers with the downloadable installer by hand and they worked first time. It was quite easy as I followed a guide here:
This made it quite clear, I merged the AppArmor patch into the kernel before building and I am running it now. Too easy, you do not need Gentoo to be able to build your own kernel. And I just finished playing through thespire2.wad and I have to say it is awesome and totally worth playing, I loved the final battle opening & closing the door and blasting monsters. And walking over hundreds of corpses to get to more monsters. Classic and cool. But DV-Zero.wad runs like shit in prboom-plus GL, but that sucks arse anyway, thespire2.wad would lag sometimes, but only for a few moments whilst it loaded in a new area and then ti would be fine.
Oh, and BTW nothing happened with my 4chan experience and my facefail page is back up.

Well, here's a couple of massive step-by-steps for older versions of Ubuntu.
All Linux is more or less the same. It's just a compilation of packages. Use whatever distro's easiest to get going on your hardware.
