I am supposed to do final year project in I.T. undergraduate course this year. We our four people group.
We are planning to do something in linux like enhancing some feature of linux kernel or developing some driver. We all have hold on c lang and is concepts but unfortunately we are not much familier with linux source code also we dont have proper guidence. Even we have to decide our problem statement soon.
I want advice from some linux geeks for newcomer like us from where should we start the search for problem which we can do as our project with interest??
Which area in linux is better and assuring to be cmpltd for us??
How do we do our search to analyze linux??
You have any nice ideas for such project??

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Look at: http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_Kernel_Newbies if you wish to get a feel for the kernel. Jumping right into kernel.org may not get the results you wish.

You might consider looking at these from http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_Kernel_Newbies;
You cannot always start at the top, you will need to get a feel for a particular project to see how you should interact with that project. One thing to use 'C' but to actually know how to integrate with a project will go a long way.

From Kernel Mentors;

KernelMentors

The Kernel Mentors Project was created by Matt Mackall as "an informal project to get experienced developers to mentor new developers and coach them on the best ways to get their code ready for submission."
The mailing list page for it can be found at http://selenic.com/mailman/listinfo/kernel-mentors.
The basic idea is matching new kernel developers up with experienced developers so they can get acquainted with existing best practices.
What this project hopes to accomplish:
  • smooth out the development process a bit
  • get various open code that ought to be in mainline merged
  • generally increase participation from various camps (vendors, embedded, etc)
  • perhaps we can even deal with some language barrier issues
  • document the process along the way
What it's not intended to do:
Various things that I think need some thinking about:
  • how to advertise this to the wider community, especially in the niches we usually don't reach
  • how to track which projects are looking for mentors
  • how to encourage people to volunteer as mentors
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Write some drivers in assembly.

Write some drivers for devices where ndiswrapper is used.

Add to ndiswrapper so that other devices such as audio or any windows driver could be used.
