JERRY COOPERSTEIN PDF

Cooperstein first demonstrates how a working character driver is loaded and deployed and then takes you under-the-hood for a closer look at the code. Jerry Cooperstein has been working with Linux since , developing and delivering training in both the kernel and user space. For the better part of two decades, Cooperstein worked on problems in nuclear astrophysics including supernova explosions, nuclear matter and neutron stars, general relativity, neutrinos and hydrodynamics at various national laboratories and universities in the United States and Europe. During that time, he developed state-of-the-art simulation software on many kinds of supercomputers and taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level. He currently lives in Wisconsin.

Writing Linux Device Drivers is designed to show experienced programmers how to develop device drivers for Linux systems, and give them a basic understanding and familiarity with the Linux kernel. Upon mastering this material, you will be familiar with the different kinds of device drivers used under Linux, and know the appropriate API's through which devices both hard and soft interface with the kernel.

The purpose is to get you into coding as quickly as possible. Thus we'll tell you early on how to dynamically allocate memory in the simplest way, so you can actually write code, and then later cover the subject more thoroughly. Each section has exercises, most of which involve writing code, designed to help you gain familiarity with programming for the Linux kernel. Solutions are provided. We are not aiming for an expert audience, but instead for a competent and motivated one.

It seems that it could just as easily be a somewhat informal textbook in a classroom setting or a desk-side companion for a kernel driver hacker.

The exercises are very much a part of what makes this book so fun. The writing style and content are a welcomed departure from the standard into-tech-slopping or disjointed glitzy spin noise associated with so many other books these days. The content is very logically presented.

It is straight-forward and solid. Every book has issues, but this one shines head and shoulders above the rest, IMO.

While it naturally tends toward front-to-rear reading, it doesn't require it the way so many other books do. What the heck?! Seriously, this book is a great book for someone who knows C programming and isn't still looking for the 'any' key on the keyboard. It is very focused on the core information and details of writing Linux drivers as kernel drivers and loadable modules. The examples and the exercises are worth the price of admission, but you get a "right-length" engaging conversational road-trip with the author for free.

The cover art should tell you that this book is more about content and less about fluff, which is true. It is a pleasure to be able to recommend a book as fun to read as this one. This book was required for one of my Computer Science classes. It does a good job at introducing all the kernel parts, but doesn't go into great detail about any one.

It's good for people that are just getting into kernel programming, but I got though the class by using Google and other references that are already out there. This book reads like a course outline used to teach a course. There are 35 chapters, most about 5 - 10 pages each. It begins by discussing driver issues, and devotes one long chapter 18 pages!

Then the book launches into virtually every kernel programming issue such as interrupts, timers, scheduling, ioctls, etc. Yes, these are useful topics for a device driver developer, but I have already seen most of these topics. The author seems to completely lose sight of the goal of this book: Writing Linux Device Drivers. Finally, in Chapter 24 the author gets back to device drivers and does provide 4 chapters on Network Drivers, and one on USB drivers.

Block drivers aren't discussed until the very last chapter 9 pages including exercises. This book can be useful as an outline, a guide to direct your online research read, Google. But I very much doubt that anyone could write a meaningful device driver using just this book. If you have access to this book, use it as a study guide. But I wouldn't recommend buying it. If you want to quickly learn the basics of building LDD, then go for it. It has everything that you need, nothing that you want.

I bought this book after reading through "Essential Linux Device Drivers" by Sreekrishnan Venkateswaran that has so much info but not structured or explained well and had me lost and confused about the basics. Book has a bunch of very useful labs and exercises with solutions provided. One of the best introductory books to LDD.
