Day 1: Tutorials: Device Driver Modules
Richard Sevenich has been teaching OS courses at Eastern Washington University
and made his tutorial as an abridged version of the class he gives there.
Richard explained how to write a simple module and how you would write a simple
character device driver, a block device one and a network one.
He also showed a few things that he had to hunt for because they've changed
in 2.4. He explained that unless you have the time to keep up with the daily
traffic on the kernel list, it's rather difficult to find up to date info and
you're left with grepping the source code and looking at other drivers hoping
that they've been updated correctly.
His tutorial was obviously longer than that, but a lot related to the hand
out material that I'm probably not allowed to post, so you kind of had to be
there I guess
