Book Description
Device drivers literally drive everything you're interested in--disks, monitors, keyboards, modems--everything outside the computer chip and memory. And writing device drivers is one of the few areas of programming for the Linux operating system that calls for unique, Linux-specific knowledge. For years now, programmers have relied on the classic Linux Device Drivers from O'Reilly to master this critical subject. Now in its third edition, this bestselling guide provides all the information you'll need to write drivers for a wide range of devices. Over the years the book has helped countless programmers learn: how to support computer peripherals under the Linux operating system how to develop and write software for new hardware under Linux the basics of Linux operation even if they are not expecting to write a driver The new edition of Linux Device Drivers is better than ever. The book covers all the significant changes to Version 2.6 of the Linux kernel, which simplifies many activities, and contains subtle new features that can make a driver both more efficient and more flexible. Readers will find new chapters on important types of drivers not covered previously, such as consoles, USB drivers, and more. Best of all, you don't have to be a kernel hacker to understand and enjoy this book. All you need is an understanding of the C programming language and some background in Unix system calls. And for maximum ease-of-use, the book uses full-featured examples that you can compile and run without special hardware. Today Linux holds fast as the most rapidly growing segment of the computer market and continues to win over enthusiastic adherents in many application areas. With this increasing support, Linux is now absolutely mainstream, and viewed as a solid platform for embedded systems. If you're writing device drivers, you'll want this book. In fact, you'll wonder how drivers are ever written without it.

    Linux Device Drivers, 3rd Edition 的作者是 Jonathan Corbet (LWN 的創辦人)、Alessandro Rubini、Greg Kroah-Hartman。即便 LDD3 已經出版許久,還是所有想寫 Linux kernel driver 的第一優先入門參考書阿。此書有中譯版。

    LDD3 務實的從實做範例開始,帶領讀者理解各種 subsystem,含括了入門操作與基本觀念,對於初次開發 lkm 的開發者提供了燈塔般的指引。

    LDD3 授權採 CC BY-SA 2.0,線上版可於此下載 http://lwn.net/Kernel/LDD3/。但由於書籍年代較久,針對的核心版本為 2.6.10,書中範例需要一點調整才能正常運作。已有同好改了幾份擺在 github (jesstess, martinezjavier).

    Un must have per sviluppatori GNU/Linux addicted, così come lo è "Understanding the linux kernel"; lo scopo del testo è di fornire le basi per poter scrivere driver su sistemi con kernel Linux.

    Ricco di esempi copre tutti i cambiamenti più importanti del ramo 2.6.x, rispetto al ramo 2.4.x - in realtà tratta il kernel 2.6.10 che al momento risulta essere obsoleto, la versione stabile infatti è la 2.6.33.3 -.

    L'ho trovato estremamente curato nei dettagli e puntuale in ogni spiegazione, pur trattando argomenti decisamente non alla portata di tutti, nel senso che si tratta di un libro estremamente tecnico, scritto per sviluppatori non alle prime armi.

    Per coloro che volessero entrare nei meandri del Kernel Linux è un libro da non perdere, sono necessarie tuttavia competenze varie, dalla conoscenza dei sistemi operativi con kernel Linux al linguaggio C-ANSI ... come minimo.

    Sono doverose diverse riletture per cogliere ogni aspetto; ripeto, consiglio vivamente di leggerlo con "Understanding the Linux Kernel" sotto mano.
