I have a PC with Ubuntu 14.04.
I'm writing some device drivers for Linux Kernel 2.6.x, i would like to test the modules using the insmod and rmmod utilities on my PC.
Is there some way to do it although the runing kernel on my PC is not 2.6.x?

If the kernel is not 2.6.x then how could you expect to test against it?

Thanks for the comment.
I thought that there is some tool or utility for that purpose something in virtual machine style.

Well you could run a different version in a Virtual Machine, but the kernel on its own cannot do anything much.

In order for you to test against a specific kernel version, you need to have that kernel version installed and running. You can do this within a virtual machine. Here are a few options from Ubuntu.[^]
