On Linux Device Drivers and Giving Talks

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 2:06 PM

I will be giving the Introduction to Linux Device Drivers talk tomorrow to the Operating Systems class in the Technion’s CS faculty. To be honest, I am entirely not looking forward to it (that’s the main reason I haven’t posted it here until now). This has happened before; however, whenever I stepped on stage and started talking I immediately began enjoying it. I hope the same thing will happen tomorrow…

Regardless of how I feel about this talk, I’d like to thank Prof. Assaf Schuster for inviting me to give the talk and the constructive criticism on the slides, to Orna for her excellent xfig-fu and editing prowess addressing said criticism, and to the anonymous poster on for the honest feedback.


  1. Thanks
    I’ve read the slides and enjoyed them πŸ™‚
    You whet my appetite to write modules, but there’s nothing I actually need Linux to do…

      Then get it to do something you don’t need πŸ™‚
      in-kernel python interpreter? πŸ™‚

        Yeah…we have similar preverse thoughts. Actually, a thought I had which is slightly less preverse is to add enough message-passing primitives to get the Hurd to run on Linux instead of Mach/L4 πŸ˜€

  3. I’m actually taking the course next semester (actually the one after it) πŸ™‚
    But I was actually in one of your past lectures to the course, I enjoyed your talk very much. Is it going to be pretty much the same, or anything changed ?

    • Pretty much the same, hopefully better elucidated.
