Dear Sir/Madam,

I am new in the programming of kerenel. I would like to add new system call to the fedora (kernel 3.6). I tried the information avaliable on the net about kernel before 3.6, but I couldn't useful link for 3.6. Can any body help (detailed steps)?

Thanks in advance

The specifics changed in kernel v3.3. Any instructions you have for 3.3 or higher should work with 3.6.

Here are a couple of links:

What do I select in the make menuconfig, so my system call will work properly?

Hi,

Make sure all you give the correct number for system call. The syscall number should be unique and not overlapping each other.
