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 :-)
