Question Make Utility and RT Linux


My friend has a program, a sample device driver that compiles and links with a Make file under Red Hat 7.1. However, it needs to be compiled and linked under RT Linux. When we move from Red Hat 7.1 to RTLinux we get a different Linux kernel source directory. So far each attempt to run Make results in yet more missing files. She's tried finding each missing file and establishing a symbolic link from /usr/src/linux to the proper directory. There's got to be a better way.

Can anyone recommend a good on-line reference to Make?

Any good advice on Making device drivers for RT Linux?
thanks

The best source I could find to help writting device drivers under linux is http://www.xml.com/ldd/chapter/book/
make? I think man page is sufficient, she just needs to ensure that all the libs she's compiling against are in place and paths are correct.

We've been using that book; best source I've found as well.
Our problem is getting all the libs in the right places and getting all the paths correct. All I've found on Make so far is the man page and simple examples. There's got to be a good on-line reference to Make, or a good book somewhere... I hope
