This looks really great! Thanks. Some ideas would be to make it more specific to Ubuntu (i.e. instead of saying "2.6.25 and later", using "Intrepid and later").

Beyond that, I see two things that need to be fixed: 1) Smack needs to be enabled in the kernel 2) smack-utils needs to be packaged for Ubuntu (and/or Debian)

I've already asked Tim Gardner (kernel team) to turn on the config for Smack, so that should show up in the next Intrepid kernel.

Is anyone interested in doing some from-scratch packaging of smack-utils?
