More hidden Gnome configurability

Posted 07-04-2010 at 09:36 AM by trevorparsons

It's so nice that over the past few months (a year or two) the mindset/ideology of Linux users and the Linux community has undergone a drastic change and has taken a turn for the better. I remember when I was trying to decide whether or not not move from MS (Microsoft) Windows and which Linux distro to choose, this was few few months ago (I haven't really moved completely to Linux,

Linux Kernel build script

I have just created a shell script that automates the kernel download and build process for the person who runs it:

When you download it, just type (in a terminal):

$ chmod a+x && ./
The script (except for make xconfig, which it executes for you but expects...
