Installing Linux

Why does it have to be so hard to do a proper install with all binary drivers included?

I really like linux but all this editing of grub.conf, installing source code to get nVidia driver installed… I am a computer specialist and I have to work a lot to get it to work, imagine novices! Sure, it works ok out of the box but when you want performance like 3D gfx… I hope you know a linux expert… Open source but hard to find documentation on what I need to know…

Mostly I blame nVidia, their installer gives me error messages what is wrong but no clue how to fix it!?!?!? Installer said I need cc. I installed gcc, installer said I need kernel sources, I installed kernel sources, installer said it need sources! WTF, I just installed sources!!!

nVidia…. GO FISH!
