Features:
1. Up-to-date kernel (as at 29 Nov 2012)
2. Customised for Toshiba NB205 netbook (945GME chipset) – should work for other Atom netbooks with similar hardware
3. BFS scheduler, BFQ/CFQ selectable IO scheduler
4. Faster start-up/boot time (by about 15% compared to standard kernel using hard disks – more if using SSD’s)
5. Aiming to be more power efficient than standard kernel
6. Aiming for smoother overall experience than standard kernel
7. TuxOnIce (hibernate) support – see below for usage
8. Kernel changes here

Downloads:
.config
kernel headers and image

To use:
1. Extract to any directory using 7-Zip
2. Open terminal window
3. cd {extracted directory}
4. sudo dpkg -i *3.6.8*zen*l12*.deb
5. (optional) Add --no-log to kernel configuration line to workaround pty errors during boot if using systemd
6. Reboot

To uninstall:
1. Boot into any other kernel
2. Open terminal window
3. sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.6.8-zen-l12-cfq linux-headers-3.6.8-zen-l12-cfq
4. Reboot

To Hibernate
1. (Skip this step if /usr/local/sbin/hibernate already exists) – Download, extract https://github.com/NigelCunningham/Hibernate-Script/archive/master.zip then sudo ./install.sh
2. (Skip this step if /usr/local/sbin/tuxoniceui_text already exists) – Download, extract https://github.com/NigelCunningham/Tuxonice-Userui/archive/master.zip then make && sudo make install && sudo mv /usr/local/sbin/tuxoniceui /usr/local/sbin/tuxoniceui_text
3. (Optional) Replace SaveClock restore-only with SaveClock yes in /etc/hibernate/common.conf
4. (Optional) See https://github.com/NigelCunningham/Hibernate-Script/blob/master/README for more information.
5. sudo /usr/local/sbin/hibernate

Patches:

Note:
Kernel defaults to using CFQ IO scheduler.
Add elevator=bfq in Kernel command line to use BFQ IO scheduler instead without recompiling.
