Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a kernel module that was developed long time back. This kernel module has got lot of sub-directories in it. Each subdirectory has got a "Makefile" that is specific to the sub-directory. At the system level, there is a "system makefile", which in-turn calls those sub-directory makefiles one by one using "make -f".
This works fine with 2.4 kernel.
Now, I want to migrate to 2.6 kernel.
And, I want to re-use those "makefiles" present in those sub-directories. Reason being that there are sub-directory specific -D options and -I options that cannot be shared at the system level.
I tried to use the following from a newly created system level makefile.
make -C $(KERNEL_SRC) SUBDIRS="$(LIST_OF_SUB_DIRECTORIES)" modules
But, it is not working. It is trying to access the "Makefile" present in those sub-directories. But it is not doing any compilation.
Am I missing something?
Any pointers to reusing the makefiles?
Any solution for my requirement?
