Description

The kernel-netbook is an unofficial kernel, modded to give the full hardware support to a wide range of netbooks with Intel Atom, in addition, it includes external drivers and firmware. This kernel optimized to be used on Debian/Ubuntu inside netbooks, and it also slightly reduces the time of the module-load in the boot process. The best feature of this kernel is maybe the optimization of the battery management through some kernel options.
