GNU Linux-libre

Linux kernel without non-free components

Linux-libre is a version of the Linux kernel suitable for use with the GNU Operating System.

It removes non-free components from Linux, that are disguised as source code or distributed in separate files. It also disables run-time requests for non-free components, shipped separately or as part of Linux, and documentation pointing to them.

The GNU Linux-libre project takes a minimal-changes approach to cleaning up Linux, making no effort to substitute components that need to be removed with functionally equivalent free/libre ones.
