Next: Basic Device Creation
Up: Installing FUSD
The earlier instructions, by default, create a FUSD kernel module.
If desired, it's also very easy to build FUSD right into the kernel,
- Unpack the 2.4 kernel sources and copy all the files in the include and kfusd directories into your kernel source tree,
under drivers/char. For example, if FUSD is in
your home directory, and your kernel is in /usr/src/linux:
cp ~/fusd/kfusd/* ~/fusd/include/* /usr/src/linux/drivers/char
- Apply the patch found in FUSD's patches directory to your
kernel source tree. For example:
patch -p0 < ~/fusd/patches/fusd-inkernel.patch
The FUSD in-kernel patch doesn't actually change any kernel sources
proper; it just adds FUSD to the kernel configuration menu and
- Using your kernel configurator of choice (e.g. make
menuconfig), turn on the FUSD options. It will be under the
``Character devices'' menu.
- Build and install the kernel as usual.
