I think "tested for linux 2.6 or higher, but current kernel would be
better" is a good summary.

Kernel 2.6 was already in Attitude Adjustment, so its nothing new.

OLSRd2 is still in development mode working towards the first stable version.

I test and develop OLSRd2 against a current Linux (Debian and Fedora
in my case) and test it against OpenWRT Barrier Breaker.

I will consider patches which solve problems for Attitude Adjustment for OLSRd2.

We have no clue what the requirements for Windows and BSD are in
OLSRd, because we did not wrote the code.

Like I said above, if you find out what are the problem areas for the
old/end-of-life SDK, I will be looking into it if I see an EASY way to
make it compile again.
