This is the home page of the Linux kernel backporting project.
We provide drivers released on newer kernels backported for usage on older kernels.
The project aims to optimize the backporting process by not only providing backported drivers but by also aiming to automatically backport the Linux kernel by optimizing backporting collateral evolutions.
The compat-drivers and compat development tree were merged, there is a new development tree:
There is now v3.10-rc1 releases available for testing, see the release page for the latest tarballs. Most of the documentation needs to be updated. Volunteers are welcomed.
- Releases will be made through this page starting from the v3.7-rc1 release.
