I custom build Linux kernels. I enjoy tinkering with the settings to try and slim down the build as much as possible.
But here is the problem: The version of the nVidia drivers in oneric is too low to support Linux 3.4 (see this bug: https://launchpad.net/bugs/993506)
So in order to use linux 3.4 on my computer, I have several options:
1) Use the source code hack (moving a file from arm/ to x86/) (I'd rather not, as this may create problems later)
2) Install the driver using nVidia's installer (Not really a good option as package conflicts would occur (e.g. warzone2100 won't install because the driver package isn't installed))
3) Find some way of installing the ubuntu 295.53 package on this system (either by installing the package directly from the launchpad link, building the package or through backports (preferable))
So, I'm assuming #3 is the most correct way of doing it, and if so, what would be the best way then?
PS: I'm not fussed about having it automatically update.
