View Full Version : external kernel module ans shared libraries

All -

I have a program that i would like to make into an external kernel module, however, it uses about 4 or 5 shared libraries that I also wrote. Normally, to run the program I have my LD_LIBRARY_PATH set accordingly in my .bashrc and just launch the main application.

My question is if i make the main application into an external kernel module and then run insmod... what is the best way to still have access to the shared libraries? Should i just copy them to /usr/lib? Or, is there some way to include them in the kernel module?

I am somewhat new to this making of kernel modules. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
