Hi ds,

Please be specific while asking for something on linux forums.

Ok now come to your doubts :

1> Module driver means = Do you need to build a driver as kernel module ?

Hi ds,

ok then 2 major thing you need to compile a kernel module for a specific kernel and target.

1> Kernel Source code or Kernel headers
2> Compiler or Cross compiler (If ARM processor or any other processor other than x86)

Both of the above thing you will get it from your Board vendor . Then you need to follow any guide under google search "compile a kernel module in Linux 3.x"

ex: http://www.smipple.net/snippet/kaiwa...ernel%20module

Though beagle board is standard one so you will get every thing (Kernel , toolchain=cross compiler) from its website
