    so would this work the same on opensuse linux distro? and how is linuxmint with driver support? thats always the problem i run into with linux distros, they never have the driver support needed for my laptop, especially one of the most important ones- the wifi driver
    also which desktop do you use? GNOME or KDE?

    I came from using Ubuntu 10.10 LTE, and moved to Linux Mint 12 (w/ GNOME). Wonders of difference. MUCH better, and now, I have NO driver issues. Everything was there right off the bat, and this laptop is only 3 months old.

    I do second this, Mint is much more stable, has much better support for everything. It is also great to build on. It's very fast and just plain works well

    That'll be the one I try then probably later tonight

    btw, how do you use source from other developers (mainly to help build an ics rom) such as this https://github.com/ThePlayground/android_device_moto_sholes
    and how would you go about building a kernel or is that a whole different ballgame here?

    Yes and no I'm sure, it'll give you a baseline to work from for it but you'll need to add/remove and edit a lot of things

    Directly from this guide, no. For example the repo init line would be changed to:
    repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b ics

    There would have to be several other changes, but I'm at work right now, and only have my phone, so I don't have time to type out more...

    I know, I need to update the guide. I will get around to it soon. There are a few changes I need to make a point of.
