View Full Version : [SOLVED] Driver programming in Ubuntu

June 2nd, 2010, 07:12 PM
Dear all,

I would like to write a HDD driver in Ubuntu, so that I could process some actions. For example, when I try to drag a file in my desktop and drop on this HDD, this operation was transformed in a encryption file on HDD.

Anyway, my question is. Is there an easy way to write drivers in Ubuntu (as easy as minifilters technique in Windows).

Thank you very much!

For thinks like that you don't need a disk driver but a file system. The easiest way to write your own file system is using FUSE (http://fuse.sourceforge.net/).

Thank you! Is there any other one for kernel space instead of user space (FUSE)?

Have a look at FiST (http://www.filesystems.org/)
