Can anyone please tell me where to find hardware programming resources with examples.
Need to learn device driver programming along with designing custom circuits.
eg. Stepper motor, LED display segment etc.

i am currently using microsoft and wanted to try linux.
i am not a programmer but wanted to learn. Is hardware programming like computer interfacing a capability of linux? just want to know...
Learning Linux Programming Custom Hardware
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 26, 2011
I am a intermediate level programmer. I usually work on microcontrollers using c but recently have decided to use higher power MCU's and run Linux to ease software development. I have been using Linux for quite a while and have bootstrapped and cross-compiled my own distro's in the past as well as done Linux From Scrath a few times. However this has not quite prepared me for custom hardware.
For example, the Beagleboard. Back when it came out and somebody says I want to run Debian on this guy they would need to make some kernel patches so the drivers knew which GPIO to toggle to access the hardware. This is where I do not even know where to start. Their are so many files, boot loaders, everything to deal with how do these guys do it?
I would like to eventually build my own custom SBC with a taylor made distro and be able to write drivers to allow userspace to access my hardware via standard API's.
Can anybody recommend some good books, tutorials, projects or even online
programming drivers for hardware in linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 20, 2004
i was curious how hard it is to make drivers for hardware for linux. Like for instance what programming languages would you need to use and how knowledigable do you need to know about hardware technologies to do so. I know it is probably a silly question but i am curious. thanks.
GPU Emulator for CUDA programming without the hardware
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 16, 2010
Question: Is there an emulator for a Geforce card that would allow me to program and test CUDA without having the actual hardware?
I'm looking to speed up a few simulations of mine in CUDA, but my problem is that I'm not always around my desktop for doing this development. I would like to do some work on my netbook instead, but my netbook doesn't have a GPU. Now as far as I know, you need a CUDA capable GPU to run CUDA. Is there a way to get around this? It would seem like the only way is a GPU emulator (which obviously would be painfully slow, but would work). But whatever way there is to do this I would like to hear.
I'm programming on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
Ubuntu vs Mac for programming

hello guys, so i already fully moved to linux programming and deleted windows i think it's suck lol!.
now i see that's a lot of programmers using mac and vice versa on ubuntu

kernel performance for old hardware...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 10, 2012
Greetings linux experts....
I'm a longtime Ubuntu user (~6 yrs) and prefer to run old hardware (<1Ghz processor, <512MB ram). For this reason i've stuck with older Ubuntus (8.04, 10.04) and prefer to run with openbox desktop to keep things lean.
I've been doing some distro research but can't find an answer. Seems as though many previous Ubuntu users have switched to Arch linux and often mention how lean and non-bloated their installs/systems run.
I'm happy with Ubuntu and the performance is okay, considering the old hardware.
Question: If Ubuntu 8.04 uses linux-headers 2.6.24 and the latest Arch linux uses linux-headers 3.5.6, won't the most recent install of Arch (they use a rolling release system) run heavier/slower than my old Ubuntu 8.04 install?
This is my hunch, can anyone with actual experience confirm?
Thanks in advance,
Ubuntu/Linux or FreeBSD which to choose for lowend hardware?

This is a reformulation of a previous post of mine, regarding
my rather negative experience with "lite" installs of Ubuntu and
other Linux distros - while I simply adore the way Ubuntu installs
itself in a userfriendly way to a userfriendly system on more recent
machines like the laptop I usually use... but, here goes:
My own experience with "lite" is this:
I have an IBM Aptiva, 450 MHz, 128 megas of RAM, which we like to use
for Internet, text processing, instant messaging, etc.
Normally I use a modern Centrino laptop running Ubuntu.
At first, I did a normal Ubuntu install on the Aptiva, but as soon as you have more
than a couple of tabs open in Firefox, or several applications running at once,
it simply dies for lack of memory.
I then followed the instructions on installing Ubuntu for low memory systems
It works, but it's not easy to get everything right: I co
Windows inside linux+C2D T6500 doesn't support hardware VT
location: linux.com - date: October 3, 2009
I am new user of ubuntu and would like to use windows inside linux using some worthwhile VT tools like virtualbox or Vmware. The problem is that my processor is core 2 duo T6500 and from its updated specifications it doesn‚Äôt support hardware virtualization!. Does that mean I cannot use VT at all ??. In some website its said that without hardware VT, 64bit OSs cannot be virtual guests, does that mean I can have 32 bit OS guests. I plan to use ubuntu 9.04 64 bit ( jaunty jackalope) and any windows OS (XP or more; 32 bit or 64 bit plz guide)..
Any help is appreciated

Ubuntu vs debian + programming
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 7, 2008
New to Linux/Ubuntu, can anyone tell me:
1. How far divergent from the debian source is ubuntu, ie was the debian source adopted 10 years ago and has been divergent ever since, or are all the latest ubuntu releases based entirely on the latest debian releases?
2. What is the best language to programme in Linux, QT, C or some other language?
