kernel.org is down!

kernel.org Down for maintenance

kernel.org Down for maintenance

Earlier this month, a number of servers in the kernel.org infrastructure were compromised. We discovered this August 28th. While we currently believe that the source code repositories were unaffected, we are in the process of verifying this and taking steps to enhance security across the kernel.org infrastructure.

What happened?

This post will continue from Useful Linux Commands: Part I and list the commands which I found useful in Linux environment.

Must mention the greatness of the Linux command line tools especially its various thoughtful switches/options. It makes the life of developers very easy and saves a lot of time. More importantly it helps people like me to continue to be lazy (did I say smart!?!)..

A poem that touched me!

If the providence is filled with grief,
Whom can you blame?

Son of a man is subject to whims of fate in this world
It’s nobody’s fault!

Linux Driver Development How-to: Get Started Live!

SDIO

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Ever wanted to get into the world of Linux Driver Development and started with LDD book:

  1. Then looked at the ‘Hello World’ driver module, finished it successfully. Later after introspection found it was too easy and did not learn much ‘critical’!
  2. After reading a few pages, eventually realized its not for you and left the journey?

If this is the case, go ahead and read further..

Well, its not that easy or that difficult. However ‘careful’ is the word one should always remember, as any small misadventure can ruin the system. Just follow this:

  • Take a deep breath
  • Just understand what you are doing
  • Leave the mentality of user space development, outside the room
  • Follow the best practices in the kernel space development

Here, I’m going to take a live module from Linux kernel space as an example to get started and show how to tweak and learn more in the process of ‘Linux Driver Development’!
