    Well i just asked because i am very noob in this.
    I guess the OSS drivers makers could create an installer for the OSS drivers like intel had done, it would be a lot useful for noob users and it could bring more people to this world since most of the people would love a free alternative to windows but usuable without requiring to go to console and smash the keyboard with commands for more simple they are

    Regards..
    And many thanks :P

    use synaptic, install it in software center, is easy and "graphical", you can choose what kernel software you want
