Regarding Device Driver and Kernel Module

Hi,

I want to dive in the world of embedded linux, I am curious to learn about custom device drivers for IP and kernel modules, but as I am new to this word, I want some good source of learning.

 

Some standard books our internet resources if you guys know then please share.

 

 

Thanks and Regards.

Re: Regarding Device Driver and Kernel Module

Be warned, though, LDD3 (Linux Device Drivers) is horribly out of date, now. Worth a read for general concepts, but don't bother using most of the examples. I don't know of a better reference, though, unfortunately. I've just been fumbling around with Google and reading through other devices in the kernel for inspiration.

Re: Regarding Device Driver and Kernel Module

I was in your same situation a few days back and this was the best resource I found: 

 

The Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide

http://tldp.org/LDP/lkmpg/2.6/html/index.html

 

This is the recommended resource in the Xilinx Embedded Design Tutorial document UG1165.
