dkms?

I don't see any instructions for this newfangled dkms thing... Is it it done automatically? — SheeEttin {T/C} 09:13, 24 December 2007 (CST)

APT/Aptitude

This guide use apt-get. Sometimes the apt-get and aptitude are interchangeable, but not always. Please don't edit this guide without knowing how use aptitude. For instance the commend "aptitude install -f" is not secure, can provoke damages (especially for "unstable" distributions). In my opinion apt-get is better for this guide. --Subvertigo 15:26, 13 January 2008 (CST)
