Today is tuesday, 30th Aug, 2005 .. next tuesday i would be leaving korea :) ......
hmmmmmmmm this was long three months.... Wrapping the work.
Next tuesday's dinner wud be in India.. VOILLAAA :) :)
if anyone has reached here searching for technical stuff then the info, which i would like to give.. is..
summary (as the scribblings, below the summary is just for my reference )
1. lwan-linux driver did not work for my 3com Office Connect USB dongle.
2. the 3com driver worked(the link is given below in this webpage).... but one has to edit the makefile. for giving the right KERNEL SOURCE PATH and the compiler, which one is using.
Well there are couple of drivers available on the net as on 22nd July, 2005 to configure Wireless Wifi USB dongles. With pcmci cards things r easy to make them work.. but USB dongle drivers are still on development phase.
After googling nd studing abt the card specifications and all, i downloaded linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre26
I was making it work on MIPS board with Au1200 chipset and after setting toolchain for mips, i was making the driver to compile & work.
Yeaaaah..... was very much busy with the work.. cud not post anything... nd how the last couple of weeks have passed....... i have no idea :)
All i remember is .. i was doing
Some coding.. some researching.... testing... evenings chatting with my gal on yahoo..
Well i should create some technical blogs now..
cud not find anything on google this... time..
so may be this helps some one.
What a beautiful start of the week after an awesome weekend. :)
Me getting Monday blues.
Reading the MIPS Instruction set.. and trying to configure.. nd write the bootloader for the reference board.
Nd yeah we were supposed to move to a new division/department.. The team managed to get two trolleys.. we packed the PCs.. nd here we go.. to another dev.
The old one was better and more comfi.. :(
I should be doing system level programming, thats what i thought and came to korea....and yeah.. i guess i would be !!
The guy with whom i am working just happens to be one of the best guys of our linux world.
Voillaaa.. have nothing much to say... he is awesomely awesome.. & i wud be working on embedded linux.. not bad haan!! :)
Having a gud time with other SISC buddies out here, who were here .. for other project requirements...
Yup all set for the first day.. to Head Quarters...
I guess.. Our Samsung's HQ is the Best place.. i have been to :)
Had some meetings.. formal talks...Got to know the work.... nd here we start...
Lunch time.. My korean project mates... orders Pizza for us :) ..

Hope to get one congregation on... Saturday night... it seems mom has collected all the info with timings !! No more in Noida.. after this sunday !!
I am trying to associate a driver to the '/dev/mem' device (the major no. and minor no. of device is 1,1.)
[vishal@vishalsoni ~]$ ll /dev/mem
crw-r----- 1 root kmem 1, 1 May 30 2005 /dev/mem
so that any read/write/mmap happening to this device.. gives control to my driver.
I am able to Successfully register the device ( dmesg tells this) & below is the code for kernel 1.6 driver.
[vishal@vishalsoni ~]$ uname -a
I guess, me back to work after a long break.... May be it will take some more time to get back on track.. to get over the worthless Hangovers......Took couple of weeks of mine....... Ooooops ..........
Finally sorted out the requirements........ & here i am listening number of Guns N' Roses, November Rain........trying to put all that it takes to write a skull driver...... nd hook the memory device.
Was remotely debugging 2.6.8 kernel with the gdbmod available at
Below are the steps...
1. I compiled the kernel source tree after applying the kgdb patch in TEST
2. Transferred the whole kernelsourcetree from /usr/src/ of TEST machine along
with object files to my Development machine
3. Transferred the modules from /lib/modules/2.6.8, modules from TEST machine
I got to study Frame Buffer System of Linux 2.6.8 kernel so that i understand Linux Display System.
I am kindaa trying to find the kernel functions which are actually resposible for drawing on the screen....
So i compiled the option thru make menuconfig
Device Drivers-------------> Graphics Support ----------> Virtual Frame Buffer Support.
The description of the same is
This is a `virtual' frame buffer device. It operates on a chunk of │
A job for debugging kernel 2.6.8
Got source code of 2.6.7
patched with kgdb patch/ patched with kernel patch of 2.6.8.
After some glitches , here & there............ compiled the kernel succesfully :)
and got landed in issue with LVM.......
/dev/mapper/control : open failed : No such file or directory .
Is device mapper mapped to kernel ? "
and i get kernel panic..........
