    linux kernel development in mac os


    Hi Friends,

    I have a macbook, but I am very much interested in writing device drivers in linux.
    Currently, I have a debian os installed. I dual booted my mac book.

    Is there any way, I can work on linux source code in mac book and do the needed development.

    Thanks

    Well, your best bet is to join some distro development team. Source-based Gentoo would be one of top choices because Gentoo has it's very own kernel patches and Gentoo actually is involved in kernel development, most distros just use vanilla sources.
