== How do I get involved with the Ubuntu Kernel? ==

The kernel team is always interested in getting community help on the kernel, we need help Triaging Bugs, reviewing patches, as well as helping to fix bugs. For more details see KernelTeam/GettingInvolved.

Welcome to the KernelTeam FAQ! The aim of this page is to provide an up to date list of common questions that we get. We encourage you to update this document when something is missing so it becomes a core source of information for the project.

General Questions

How do I find the kernel team?

The Kernel Team is primarily IRC based as we are located in disparate cities throughout the world. We typically hang out on the #ubuntu-kernel channel on FreeNode, please be patient if we seem to be quiet. See the KernelTeam page for more details.

How do I get involved with the Ubuntu Kernel?

The kernel team is always interested in getting community help on the kernel, we need help Triaging Bugs, reviewing patches, as well as helping to fix bugs. For more details see KernelTeam/GettingInvolved.

Can I get a patch included in Ubuntu's kernel?

See KernelTeam/KernelPatches.

The Ubuntu kernel config produces huge packages

Our build includes CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO in order to produce linux-debug-image packages. We then manually strip the modules after build.

If you re-use our config for your own build, your best bet is to change this line in the config:

CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y

To this:

# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is not set
