Accessing a device-driver out of kernel-module

Accessing a device-driver out of kernel-module

Post by Ralf Haferkam » Wed, 04 Nov 1998 04:00:00

How can I get access to a device driver from a kernel-module?
I found the function sys_open() in fs.h, but if I make insmod
<my_module> I get:
        unresolved symbol sys_open
whats the problem? Do I have to link my module to a special library?
