Below are links to the versions of linux that support our products and are available on our website. Usually, you'll want to use one of the more recent versions provided here.

The linked topics provide precompiled kernels and corresponding source code. Older versions - before 2.4.26 - also provide ramdisk root file systems for the specified versions. Beginning with 2.4.26, root file systems will no longer be provided for specific kernel versions. Instead, ramdisk root file systems and other root file system types will be released independently. Visit the Root File Systems topic to learn about the different types and select one for your board.

These versions support i.MX31, PXA2xx, and EP93xx based boards and both EABI (armel) and regular (old ABI) root file systems:
These versions support the i.MX31 based BitsyG5 board and both EABI (armel) and regular (old ABI) root file systems:
These versions support PXA27x, EP93xx and IXP4xx based boards:
These versions support PXA255 based boards:
These vesions support our SA11xx (StrongARM) based boards:
