Book Description

This book is an excellent guide for people who want to write kernel modules. It takes a hands-on approach starting with writing a small "hello, world" program, and quickly moves from there. Far from a boring text on programming, Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide has a lively style that entertains while it educates.

No distribution can provide a Linux kernel that meets all users'needs. Computers big and small have special requirements that requirereconfiguring and rebuilding the kernel. Whether you are trying toget sound, wireless support, and power management working on a laptopor incorporating enterprise features such as logical volume managementon a large server, you can benefit from the insights in this book.
