Is there a good way to compile and use kernel 3.10.107 on Ubuntu 16:04 LTS?

My main reason is that I have development/server machine where I want to add additional USB device what have drivers only for Kernel 3.10.107. My current kernel version is 4.10.0-30-generic.

Or is there a way to adapt that driver for new kernel?

Here is details about driver: https://github.com/FrescoLogic/FL2000

  • Wouldn't an older (3.x) kernel break some of the Ubuntu 16 programs? A lot changed between kernel 3.x and 4.x ... Perhaps an older distro in a virtual machine. – jc__ Aug 18 '17 at 14:46
  • @jc__ I can't use virtual machine. I need 3 monthors on one machine. 2 is already connected on graphic card and 3th need to go with FL2000 USB display driver. I generaly want to adapt this plugin to work on bigger kernel version if is possible – Ivijan Stefan Stipić Aug 18 '17 at 21:47
