Resource / tutorial for Linux Device Driver and Hardware Info


I usually required to troubleshoot the network card issue, USB connectivity issue, serial and parallel port communication, PCIe bus recognition and workings..most of time troubleshooting the hardware stuff.Though I use utlity like lspci, dmesg, mii-tool, ethtool etc..but I want to get depth into troubleshooting and understanding the Linux architecture.Say, I have a network card from Intel not working with RHEL 6.0, so all I can't see eth0 interface at all during the DHCP startup.All I do is loading the e1000 module or compiling the network driver to see if that works or not.

Any idea of Linux hardware reference/tutorial which can help me build a good fundamental on this. I am a Linux System Administrator and needs to improve my skills on Linux Device Driver troubleshooting.

This is more targeted to driver developers, but you might find the Linux Device Drivers book useful. It's available for free (legally!) from .
