DKMS is a neat idea brought in from Dell, and it helps recompile kernel modules brought in from packages other than the official ubuntu kernel packages every time the kernel is updated. For instance, virtualbox, kqemu, and nvidia. However, it also spends about 5 seconds to check on every boot for each driver to be properly installed.
