Accessing a kernel buffer from user space


Hi all
I want to use the kernel buffer from user space. I can allocate the kernel memory using a module. Can any one of you tell me what i need to do inside module so that i can make it available in the user space. Any kind of help is highly appreciated.

Thanks
Jan

I don't know very much about that, but you might get a clue or two from the man page for 'dmesg' which is the control program for the kernel ring buffer.
Sorry if this is not quite what you're looking for

Thanks for your reply.. but my aim is to get a solution for accessing the kernel buffer allocated through some kernel modules by the application from the application. Is it feasible to implement something like this?

Thanks in advance
