Welcome to the Linux Kernel Archives. This is the primary site for the Linux kernel source, but it has much more than just kernels.
|This site is now connected via a dedicated 100 Mbit/s connection graciously provided by Globix. A new VArServer 700 with a 100 GB RAID provided by VA Linux Systems is powering this connection. We hope that this will greatly alleviate the severe bandwidth shortage we have been suffering from in the past, and that we will be able to provide new services in the future. Please enjoy the newly updated site!|
To guard against Trojan mirror sites, all files originating at the Linux Kernel Archives are cryptographically signed.
It has all the features you would expect in a modern fully-fledged Unix, including true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, shared copy-on-write executables, proper memory management, and TCP/IP networking.
Linux was first developed for x86-based PCs (386 or higher). These days it also runs on Compaq Alpha AXP, Sun SPARC, Motorola 68000 machines (like Atari ST and Amiga), MIPS, PowerPC, ARM and SuperH. Additional ports are in progress, including PA-RISC and IA-64.
The Linux Installation HOWTO has more information how to set up your first Linux system.
Some software on this site is capable of encryption. The United States government controls exports of commercial use encryption software under the Export Administration Regulations ("EAR"). EAR amendments published Jan. 14, 2000, lifted most controls over publicly available encryption source code that is not subject to payment of license fee or royalty payment. This kind of encryption source code now can be exported or reexported without a license provided that the U.S. government is notified about the Internet location of the software. kernel.org source code is publicly available without license fee or royalty payment, and all binary software is derived from source code available on kernel.org. The U.S. government has been notified about this site. Therefore, the code can be exported without a U.S. export license except to the following destinations: Afghanistan, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Serbia (except Kosovo), Sudan and Syria. By downloading cryptographic software from this site you are agreeing to these terms.
This legal notice applies to cryptographic software only.
In addition, some cryptographic extensions to the Linux kernel are archived at kerneli.org. kerneli.org is located in Norway, and has no connections with the Linux Kernel Archives or Transmeta Corporation.
Please refer to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Center for Democracy and Technology or the Global Internet Liberty Campaign for more information about current U.S. regulations, why they are a bad idea, and what you can do about them.

Please do not send general Linux questions to these addresses. We do not have the resources to reply to them.
