kernel headers and image
*Links updated – kernel now works with TrueCrypt/VirtualBox.

2. cd {extracted directory}
3. sudo dpkg -i *39*zen*.deb
4. Reboot

Credits to:
Zen kernel developers & Pappy (Kernel Seeds) for initial .config seed.


For higher power consumption with 2.6.39 kernel – try (as this may cause hangs) adding pcie_aspm=force to /etc/default/grub then sudo update-grub. Credits to Phoronix.

If having VMWare Player vmmon compile problems with any 2.6.39 kernel:
1. Install VMWare Player 3.1.4.
2. Download & untar http://weltall.heliohost.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/vmware2.6.39patchv3.tar.bz2 to home folder.
3. cd ~ then sudo ./patch-modules_2.6.39.sh
4. Run VMWare player normally.
