    Default Device drivers for solaris 9 ?

    Hi!

    We need to implement some device drivers to solaris 9 on both sparc
    and x86.

    Where are those implemented ? In Kernel or in loadable modules ? Could
    anyone point me to an url for examples of rs232-related device drivers
    ?

    Thanks!

    Solaris drivers are all loadable modules.
    The kernel automatically loads them on demand, and unloads them
    sometimes when not in use.

    Not async specific, but you will need to have a good read of the
    Writing Device Drivers manual [url]http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/806-5222[/url]
    and as async drivers are all STREAMS drivers, you will need to
    know a bit about STREAMS too [url]http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/806-6546[/url]

    Loadable modules. See
    [url]http://developer.sun.com/prodtech/solaris/driverdev/index.html[/url] for many
    links to driver development kits and tons of technical info.
