make and Makefiles

Posted by Balachandran on October 2, 2006

I Tried to write a hello world kernel. The coding as most people know is a child’s play. But since what we write is a module to be attached with the kernel, it has to compiled differently. The usual gcc filename.c wont help. So i wrote a Makefile for that and tried the GNU make command. I got nothing but a errors stretched over a couple of screens. I was totally devastated… for it was my first attempt and a very simple one at that and yet i could not do it succesfully…. 😦 :-S hope i do it properly soon
