Thank you! I did as that but came across some problems,these are the
jobs and the errors:
1) I copyed the files to the sys/dev/mydevice and added
"dev/mydevice/mydevice.c optinonal mydevice" in the file
/usr/src/sys/conf/files.i386,and added a line "device mydevice" in
the sys/i386/conf/MYKERNEL(a copy of GENERIC),but met a error when
config MYKERNEL:syntax error (the line I just added).
2) Then,I modified line in files.i386 as "dev/mydevice/mydevice.c
standard",configed successfully,but another error occured when make
depend(make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL the same):
../../../dev/mydevice/mydevice.c:27:20: mydevice.h: No such
file or directory
../../../dev/mydevice/mydevice.c:28:44: mydevicekern.h: No such
file or directory
../../../dev/mydevice/mydevice.c:29:49: mydeviceioctl.h: No
such file or directory
mkdep: compile failed
*** Error code 1
and the source code of mydevice.c is as follows:
the three headers are just in the sys/dev/mydevice directory,I don't
know why this happened.
