They used to publish the source for their 2.4 kernel on routerboard.com (in fact, it's still available at 
http://routerboard.com/files/linux-2.4.31.zip), but I've not seen anything for the 2.6 kernel however and the 
routerboard.com site was redesigned a little while ago, seemingly without the links as far as I can tell.

It might be a case of you need to ask them for it. Would be interesting to see which bits are GPL.

Does Mikrotik publish their modified Linux kernel source? Might be
interesting to look at it.


Last time I looked, the "mpls-linux" project over at SourceForge was incomplete and slow - I have no idea if this 
has changed at all recently however.

I'm fairly sure that Mikrotik software is based on linux, and supports MPLS. 

Not too sure which package they use, or if they rolled their own MPLS support...

What's the state of MPLS on Linux these days?
