    porting driver from 2.6.30 --> 2.6.10 (montavista distro, PPC MPC8572)


    Hi,
    I just need to port a Wifi driver for a module connected to a SPI interface from 2.6.30 to 2.6.10 .
    What are major differences between these versions? Is it at all doable without rewriting most of the driver code?

    Any site where I can see kernel changes in a structured way?

    Thanks for any help!

    The kernel source code can be found at Kernel.org, you can download specific versions and run diffs between them. You might want to look very carefully at any changes, as there may be features/interfaces that the new driver code uses that aren't available in the 2.6.10 code - it might be easier to get the source code for 2.6.30 and then build your own custom kernel for your montavista distro installs.
