Faster Ubuntu performance on Celeron Eee Pc 700's and 900's

The Netbook remix of Ubuntu 9.04 tends to run a little slow on Celeron-based Eee PCs, which includes almost all Eee PCs released prior to May 2008. On the 700 and the 900, you can speed up performance by installing a custom, optimized kernel.

1. Get the .deb files:


2. Install them:

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic_2.6.28-11.43~lp349314apw5_i386.deb linux-image-2.6.28-11-generic_2.6.28-11.43~lp349314apw5_i386.deb

3. Reboot.

The system should now feel more responsive. Here's a link to the bug page describing why the default kernel performance is slow:
