Is it necessary to have 2.6 kernel when referring to ldd3 modules for development?

If so, what would be the best resource for kernel module development on 4.15 kernel?

  • Kernel 2.6 is EoL for many years. So the question is unclear. You don't need this kernel for anything. – Pilot6 Aug 15 at 7:36

    The current kernel is somehow considered 2.6 series since the massive architectural changes between 2.4 and 2.6, nowadays the latest kernel is 5.3-rc4 and the stable is 5.2.8, the ones available by default on stable Ubuntu are a bit older, I'm currently using Disco Dingo with 5.0. – Yaron Aug 15 at 8:38

Nowadays (August 2019) the latest kernel is 5.3-rc4 and the stable is 5.2.8, the ones available by default on stable Ubuntu are a bit older, I'm currently using Disco Dingo (19.04) with 5.0, while Eoan Ermine (19.10) already upgraded to 5.2 on the systems that I checked.
