Needs work. 3 septembre 1999
Par Jack Dennon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Does contain lots of interesting info about Linux drivers and Linux in general. But the meat is more reference than tutorial. A really great tutorial begins chapter two, and so I thought here I'm really going to learn everything I need to know about creating Linux drivers. Didn't turn out that way. After you work the first exercise, that is, the tutorial example at the beginning of chapter two, you have seen the last of the complete examples. From here on it's code fragments and isolated functions. The author obviously could have written the book we need. But he didn't. It's a valuable book, but it's not a tutorial. What a beginner needs are whole, complete, real, listings of programs that work. Which reminds me, a real driver that drives a real device, presented in its entirety, with all details of how to compile it, and how to run it, would have been far more instructive than a "driver" that reads and writes only in memory so that it can be "portable" across many Linux platforms. A portable driver probably is a neat stunt that impresses existing gurus, but that's not the group that needs this book. To see what I'm driving at, look at Kernighan and Pike's "The UNIX Programming Environment." Their big programming project is indeed presented in fragments and isolated functions in their chapter eight, but the entire project just as it will appear on your disk is listed in the appendix. If Rubini had followed that model his book could have been really instructive. But he didn't. So there's an opportunity here. Some guru should set down and assemble these fragments into the book we need.

A good book, if you know what your doing 11 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a great book for understanding drivers and the Linux kernel internals, but only if you have a strong assembly/C background and know PC hardware. I found myself checking other books on programming often to understand the content of this book.

Linux Device Drivers 15 décembre 1999
Par Daniel Sheltraw - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the best and most complete book on writing linux device drivers yet. My only suggestions are (1) that the author writes a new addition or supplement for the 2.2 kernel and (2) that this new book include an example driver after the hello world driver that is only slighlty more complicated in that it uses the fops and one method. An example of how user-space code would then call this driver would be helpful as well.

Excellent, a little bit old (in NO way obsolete!) book 16 mars 2000
Par Alex Bolenok - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It's just a gift of heaven (and O'Reilly) for any Linux device driver writer. You can find everything you need to know about device driver basics there, in a 'user-friendly' form. Sample code is also included. You'll find there explanation of all file operations, structures and useful functions used by device drivers (character, block and network). In addition, there are hints concerning some tricky things (such as ISA autoprobing), and they are sharpened for Linux!
What this book really lacks, is
1) Explanation of Linux rules for writing one's own standard (such as Video for Linux), or at least advice for how to do it. There are way too few pure character devices for the question of standartization to be ignored, IMHO!
2) New 2.2.* kernel features. If you are seeking for detailed and exact explanation of the functions of _THESE_ kernels, this is not your book. So, Alessandro, we are all waiting for a second edition!

The best-written introduction to the Linux kernel 7 juillet 2000
Par Thomas Horsten - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is a must-have if you want to write your own device drivers for Linux, or if you just need a place to get started hacking the kernel.
All the basics are covered and you really don't need to know much about the kernel internals to read this book. If you're not a beginner it still contains valuable information and it's organized in a way to make it very easy to skip the areas you are already familiar with.
After a few chapters you'll be able to write your own driver from scratch. When you have read the whole book you'll also be familiar with some of the more complex concepts of kernel programming. You will not be an expert kernel hacker but you will have an excellent base for learning more yourself.
The only drawback is that it doesn't completely cover the newer kernels (2.2 and above), but although some details have changed, most of the concepts are still more or less the same, so the knowledge you gain can easily be adapted to the later versions.
