Porting Device Driver to NetBSD-1.1

Porting Device Driver to NetBSD-1.1

Post by Biswajit Nan » Sat, 18 May 1996 04:00:00


We would like to port a device driver (for a pci ATM adapter card) from
NetBSD-1.0 to NetBSD-1.1.

Please let us know, if there is any relevent document like, how to port
device driver, net-bsd kernel description etc.

How easy/difficult is to port a driver from 1.0 to 1.1?




1. Linux to NetBSD driver porting tutorial?

I'm looking for some fairly basic information on porting Linux drivers
to NetBSD.  

What I really need to know is, does NetBSD have routines equivelent to
Linux's "init_module", "register_chrdev", and "pci_registerDriver"?

A more general way of putting this is, how soes the NetBSD device
driver mechanism differ from Linux?
