This page contains direct links to the latest versions of the most popular downloads from Linaro. These include a selection of builds including Android, the LAVA test framework and key toolchains.
The LSK is a version of kernel.org’s Long-Term Stable (LTS) release with new Linaro developed optimizations and ARM support integrated. There are two versions: a “Core” version for generic Linux and an “Android” version. Click right for the latest downloads.
R-LCR is a build of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) from a stable “L” branch that includes platform support and other features. R-LCR includes the Android flavour of Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK) for all machine configurations.
The Linaro Automated Validation Architecture (LAVA) is a test and continuous integration framework that Linaro uses to validate its releases. The source is open so that members and others can create their own instantiations and run proprietary tests within this standard framework. Click here for the latest downloads.
Based on the Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK) and upstream, these kernels add features currently being developed by LNG and not upstreamed yet.
