About backports

Backports provide drivers released on newer kernels backported for usage on older kernels. Always use the latest stable release! The project started since 2007 and was originally known as compat-wireless, evolved to compat-drivers and was recently renamed simply to backports. Both daily snapshots based on linux-next, and stable releases based Linux's stable releases are provided. As of the v3.10 based release over 830 device drivers are backported.

Current versions of backports support all mainline kernels starting with version 3.0, for kernel versions older than 3.0 please use backports-3.14, which supports all kernel versions back to 2.6.26.
