Zatara Loadable Kernel Modules and BusyBox Utility

By:  Reza Ahmadi

Abstract: Maxim's Zatara® products include device drivers for various components of the board, such as magnetic card readers or random number generators. These device drivers are also known as "loadable kernel modules" and can be added to the kernel at runtime. BusyBox is a replacement for the standard set of commands and is designed for systems with low memory, few resources, or both. This quick start guide describes how loadable kernel modules work and the commands used to add, list, and remove these modules from the Linux kernel. It also describes the BusyBox utility suite and its functionality.
