Acer Aspire one 2.6.31-rc7 Kernel

Well, I had several options to improve performance for the AAO. I realized one of the drawbacks with Ubuntu, specially in underpowered systems is the bloated kernel which is compiled in a general way for any system that might use it. This lack optimization, I’m sure, it’s a major contributor to the sluggishness of the AAO.

Downloaded :
Kernel 2.6.31-rc7 headers+image from http://www.kuki.me

after that just clicked on both to install
