Will Ubuntu (with latest stable kernel from source if neccessary) run on a System with ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE Motherboard?

I could not find any hints by asus itself, but from the debian hardware database there are similar P8 motherboards with Z77 Chipset in the list.

Can anyone confirm that the other devices on the board are supported too?

Define "latest" kernel?. –  Uri Herrera Jan 27 '13 at 19:50
    
@UriHerrera I want to run Ubuntu on the system, and if necessary I build a kernel from source for it. The latest kernel can be found on kernel.org. –  Jonas Stein Jan 27 '13 at 19:52

I'd try to run it from the install DVD, don't install it but run Ubuntu directly from the DVD and see if it works. I can't guarantee thought that there won't be a difference between running from the DVD or installed from an HDD/SSD. I have a similar board P8Z77-V Pro and it runs great from the DVD, haven't installed Ubuntu on this machine yet though.

Yes it worked. I switched to gentoo in the meantime, but the kernel 3.6.11 supports all features of the motherboard (at least I did not miss any yet).

The lines Kernel driver in use: show which kernelmodules I used for this board.
