I'm a CS student at my university, so I typically run a version of linux at my home computer when I do programming in C or other linux specific stuff. I really hate grub (it never seems to work for me), so I installed ubuntu on an external hard disk, and it boots and runs fine with only a few grub issues.
My desktop has and AMD processor and an AMD graphics card. I want to take my laptop to school sometimes (I take my chromebook right now as its much lighter and easier to bike with) when I really need to crank out some work and would like to use ubuntu as well. I guess I am wondering what the best solution here would be:
A) Is it possible to dual boot with these different graphics drivers/hardware? I built a vanilla linux kernel [an assignment for one of my classes] and it inserted its own drivers for each kernel version. Would it be possible to build another ubuntu kernel, make it in my grub file, and install only nvidia drivers, then boot that kernel when I use my laptop? (I don't even know if this is possible?)
B) Just dual boot 2 ubuntu installations on the external disk? Would rather have one install if possible.
