If this (I assume the instruction to which you're referring) installs the kernel version you want and can use okay, then sure, should work nicely. I tried out the low-latency one too, out of curiosity, although I don't think I really need it.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install linux-lowlatency
Just make sure you select that new kernel at bootup, via GRUB. You can adjust /etc/default/grub to make your selection perisistent. For reference, here's part of mine:
