View Full Version : [ubuntu] Kernel Upgrade

March 4th, 2010, 04:31 PM
I am using ubuntu 9.10 desktop edition (not the netbook remix) on my acer aspire one netbook.Karmic koala boasted about the fast boot and all but it seems to much slower than jaunty.I even updated my system to current date but still it taked about 45-50 sec for login screen to appear.I checked my kernel it is (2.6.31-19 generic) whereas on the kernel.org the latest stable version of kernel available is 2.6.33.Im thinking that upgrading the kernel might make a difference but i dont know how to do that manually as the synaptics doesnt prompt for the kernel upgrade.Kindly help me out
