First, this is completely unsupported so if you have any issues you'll
have to figure them out yourself.
Now that that's out of the way, if you really want an Ubuntu-like kernel
based on 2.6.34, the best thing would be to grab the latest 2.6.34
Maverick kernel released a few weeks ago:
However, that was just a stepping stone towards our Maverick release
based on 2.6.35. There will be no further 2.6.34 kernels released by our
team. It also includes all our in-development patches for Maverick. Some
may be broken or expose security risks. Again, there is no explicit
support for using these kernels!
