This page has references to various kernel resources (web sites and mailing lists) for developers. Most of this information was gathered over a year ago, and may not be accurate.

/\ Note: You should always look at the kernel MAINTAINERS file for up-to-date information

Vanilla Linux kernel

   - web site = http://www.kernel.org/
   - Linux Kernel Source Tarballs
   - Linus' Git Repository
   - Mercurial mirror of Linus's Git Repository
  • If this doesn't have everything you need, something is wrong.
    • In the embedded world, many things are often wrong.

Mailing List (lkml)

LKML summaries

Repository access

  • Kernel Git repositories
  • Vanilla Linux Git Tree - This is "upstream". Get your code into here, please.
  • Note: Linus's Repository only goes back to 2.6.12-rc2, the history before that is not included in his repository.
    • But this one has all the going back to 0.0.1, and updates itself from Linus's tree when you do a "git pull". (This is really cool. You want this.)
