guide to Writing device drivers (new)


All the guides I could find were old- like 2007-2010...like
http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/.../drivers_linux
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...r-for-Linux-OS


Can some one point me to a new one which is uses the latest method?

I doubt much has changed there in a while.
Explain what "latest method" for kernel module loading you were seeking info on.

Like:
use of udev, for the device instantiation

Thanks, but, I Found new ones: in case some one else like me needs it:
http://pete.akeo.ie/2011/08/writing-...r-kernels.html
and
http://appusajeev.wordpress.com/2011...device-driver/
The above one was easy to understand for a newbie like me.You could download the sample code too.

Sorry, my mistake - I mis-read "kernel module" instead of "device driver". Of course udev has been around for quite a while.
Must be time for me to go watch the football instead.
