GNU Linux-libre

https://www.gnu.org/software/linux-libre/
A free (as in freedom) variant of the Linux kernel.

Linux-libre is a modified version of Linux with all of the binary blobs, obfuscated code and portions of code under proprietary licenses removed.

Currently Linux-libre is maintained and published by the Free Software Foundation Latin America. This is a GNU package.

Packaging

LInux-libre is available in most of the FSF-endorsed distros on https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.html and the lastest versions are packages in Guix and Parabola GNU/Linux-libre. Linux-libre can also be installed on GNU/Linux distributions that use APT from jxself's APT repository: https://jxself.org/linux-libre/

The kernel consists of code under many licenses. Although there is some code in the kernel under GPLv2-or-later being combined with the kernel's other GPLv2-only code, the effective license GPLv2-only, not GPLv2-or-later.
