I would like to install XanMod Kernel customization and have some question


My overall linux knowledge isn't nowherenear guru status so If I blunder in terms of noobish questions , please bare with me. Why do I want to install this kernel modification is curiosity ( can i do it, can't ) This is the kernel in question https://xanmod.org/ .I know my way around CLI so if something goes fubar I don't panic and I try to fix. Some basic questions, first I am running a laptop with Nvidia gpu, so I will have to install the driver from scratch as I haven't found pre-compiled packages, this is something I am familiar with, might be a bit rusty tbh, from what I recall I had to drop down to init 3, install the driver than back up to init 5 ( please correct me if I am mistaken, it has been over a decade since I did this dirty nvidia driver install. I noticed they provide with precompiled packages in the synaptic software but no graphics. So basically a few questions, once I install the xanmod package, whats the next step? Nvidia driver? Also If any of you guys took the plunge and installed this, any feedback much apriacted.

P.s Ubuntu Mate 16.0.4

why don't you try to install this kernel? If does not work you can still revert/reboot to the official one.

I'm pretty sure 16.0.4 uses systemd, maybe the "init" syntax won't work.
