The ideas should still be the same, but the details have changed. If you don't like that, then just refer to the best documentation there is, the source itself. The kernel comes with TONS of built-in documentation (make pdfdocs) and all of the source code which shows exactly how things work together. And it's free! best of luck, greg k-h _______________________________________________ Kernelnewbies mailing list Kernelnewbies@kernelnewbies.org https://lists.kernelnewbies.org/mailman/listinfo/kernelnewbies
