Hi all,

I've followed up LDD3 and started off with writing device drivers . As
usual i've started with char drivers given in that book and also started
to make minor modifications to learn it better and so on.

Now i would like to know how to take it forward and start writing
drivers for a profession.
I know its too early to call myself a guy writing device drivers but how
do i take if forward from here so that i can become one.

Is the only solution to pick up a device which does not work on linux
and get it working? Are there any other ways as well?

Hi Shampavman

There are many ways to became a Linux Device Driver Developer.

-> New Embedded platforms ; There are many platforms with none official
Linux kernels ( came to my mind some with HDMI like DN2800MT)
-> Fix and test the current development kernel. Check on Bugzilla the
thousands of bugs that haven't been fixed ( waiting for you )

Hope it helps
