Installing Linux on Bleeding Edge Computers

A common question I find in online forums is how to install a Linux distro on bleeding edge computers. Often the challenge is the need for newer drivers, which means a newer kernel.

Similar to installing Linux on old computers, use the same basic trick to avoid installation limitations.

  1. Temporarily remove the hard disk.
  2. Install the disk in a compatible spare computer.
  3. Install the distro.
  4. Install or backport a newer kernel and packages.
  5. Return the disk to the newer computer.
