I propose a forum on building linux drivers. Posts that would logically go in it are scattered around in a bunch of other forums (or is it fora?) now. I have been looking for a solution to the dreaded "no module found in object" error, and it seems that nobody has an answer. This frustrates me enormously, since I have built and loaded modules under kernels 2.2, 2.4 and 2.6 (gentoo), but now I can't do it on my new EmperorLinux dell 510 with Fedora core 3. (no help from the emperor as of now) So I would be infinitely grateful for a simple "hello" module along with the instructions for compiling and loading it. This is really something that should be provided with every distro and pre-loaded linux system, since the kernel maintainers have seen fit to make it so difficult.
Beyond this problem which has motivated me to come here, the driver forum would be the place for all those knotty issues about scheduling the bottom half, accessing the data by memory mapping and whatever else comes up.
