Kernel Modules (R6x86)


This package contains additional kernel drivers for x86 (Intel) ReadyNAS systems (RN3xx/RN5xx) running ReadyNAS OS 6. There are different versions available for the different kernels used in different ReadyNAS OS 6 releases.


This add-on offers different files for downloading. Generally you only need the one matching the ReadyNAS OS 6 release running on your ReadyNAS. Since not all ReadyNAS OS 6 releases use a new kernel, please use the following matrix to determine the version that fits your ReadyNAS:

Kernel Mod PackageReadyNAS OS 6 release
rnx-kernelmods_6., 6.2.1, 6.2.2
rnx-kernelmods_6., 6.2.4
rnx-kernelmods_6., 6.4.2
rnx-kernelmods_6., 6.7.2
rnx-kernelmods_6. 6.7.4

Important: Currently there are only kernel drivers for the x86 architecture (RN3xx/RN5xx) available.

Please note that after upgrading to a ReadyNAS OS 6 release that contains a new kernel you also need to install the kernel module package for that kernel afterwards.

You’ll also need to re-install the add-on when upgrading from one supported ReadyNAS OS 6 release to another, even if both releases are supported by the same kernel module package. That’s because after an upgrade the modules need to be registered with the kernel again.

At the moment the kernel module packages contain mostly drivers for DVB devices, namely USB TV stick. In addition there are drivers for USB serial devices included. If you’re missing a driver you need for a specific project just drop me an email and I’ll try to include it.

Update (2015-10-11) : With the release of ReadyNAS OS 6.4.0 which includes the Linux kernel 4.1.7 most drivers should work now, even for fairly recent USB devices.
