Thread: Programming Kernel modules

    Default Programming Kernel modules

    Hello,

    I want to make some kernel programming just for fun. I have downloaded from lwn.net the book "Linux drivers". In order to build a driver, I have to build a kernel first, but the kernel does a lot of time and consumes a lot of space. Do I have to build a whole new kernel or is there any way to speed up or bypass this step?

    Thanks....

    Default Απ: Programming Kernel modules

    Look firstly what programming languages do you know?
    Secondly if you want to develop kernel, it would better to read this Kernel (programming language) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    this Kernel (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    and this The Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide
