Writing a Linux Kernel Module — Part 1: Introduction

In this series of articles I describe how you can write a Linux kernel module for an embedded Linux device. I begin with a straightforward “Hello World!” loadable kernel module (LKM) and work towards developing a module that can control GPIOs on an embedded Linux device (such as the BeagleBone) through the use of IRQs. I will add further follow-up […]

Introduction to CMake by Example

This article provides a straightforward set of “Hello World!”¬†introductions to using CMake for building C++ projects.¬†All steps are performed using Linux on the BeagleBone platform, but the instructions are relevant to most Linux platforms.
The make utility and Makefiles provide a build system that can be used to manage the compilation and re-compilation of programs that are written in any programming […]
