kernel module for hercules graphic card


i had a module (char device) that worked well under kernel 2.0
when i upgraded to 2.2 it does not work anymore.
i read about ioremap for direct memory access, and i
can already display a char, but only inside the init routine.
the documentation i found about writing char devices was
not sufficcient ;(

do you know any sources of documentation ?
