Simple Linux Kernel Module (LKM) template.


You need cookiecutter, a tool to create projects from project templates. Once installed (in a virtualenv or just with pip install cookiecutter), you can use the following command:

cookiecutter -c latest
cd your-project
git init
git add .
git commit -m "Initial commit"

Then, use the following command to get the first steps to get started:

git ls-tree -r --name-only HEAD | \
    xargs grep -nH "T[O]DO:" | \
    sed 's/\([^:]*:[^:]*\):\(.*\)T[O]DO:\(.*\)/\3 (\1)/' | \
    sort -ns | \
    awk '(last != $1) {print ""} {last=$1 ; print}'

Once you are done, your project is ready and you can compile it with and get a release tarball with:

mkdir build
cd build
make dist

Once you want to make a release, tag the tree with git tag 1.3, then run the previous commands from the top. You’ll get a properly versioned tarball with a CHANGELOG file if this is not your first version.
