It appears he's interested in writing modules for the Linux Kernel and has
been using the book 'Linux Device Drivers, Second Edition' as a reference,
but none of the examples in the book are compiling for him. As he's stated,
he's running kernel 2.6.8-2.

He wants to know if there is any way to make the examples in that book work or
if he has to go pick up the new version of that book. I've not seen the
books examples myself, and I'm just trying to get up to speed on the kernel
internals myself so I can't answer his question.

Hope the interpretation of his somewhat broken english helps :)
