    Newbie needs help with LKM's


    Please help before my boss blows a fuse.

    I need to write a device driver for Damn Small LInux that uses 2.6.11. My question is, can I develop the device driver under Fedora running 2.6.11 and expect it to install on DSL??

    I know this is a fundumental question, but I really don't want to develop on DSL if possible.

    Thanks!!

    The easy answer is yes. Most of drivers in a RH distribution are the same than the vanilla kernel has. (some of them have minor changes).

    But try to test your module in a DSL as much as you can.

    Best regards
