ldd3-examples: an updated version of the Linux Device Drivers 3 example library at http://examples.oreilly.com/9780596005900/ Source is freely available at http://github.com/jesstess/ldd3-examples/ Background ---------- Linux Device Drivers 3 (http://lwn.net/Kernel/LDD3/, http://oreilly.com/catalog/9781565922921/) comes with an example library written for the 2.6.10 kernel (get the tarball at http://examples.oreilly.com/9780596005900/). Many of the kernel APIs have changed since then, and most of the examples no longer compile or work against more recent kernels. This project aims to update the examples library to be compatible with newer kernels, with a minimal diff. This means it doesn't include fixes for errata (http://oreilly.com/catalog/errata.csp?isbn=9781565922921) or remove compiler warnings that are present in the original example library. Compiling the examples ---------------------- Without editing the Makefiles, most examples error out during compilation because of CFLAGS error. One way to get around this is to compile with the KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC environment variable set. For example, to build the whole library, from within the examples/ directory you could: $ export KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 $ make or $ make KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 Bugs ---- Please send bugs reports, comments, and suggests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
