    Porting a Driver from 2.6 to 3.2


    I am trying to get a USB/GPIB device (agilent 82357a) working with ubuntu 12.04.
    I am fairly new to drivers but i have been reading "Linux Device Drivers 3rd Ed" ( It very specifically says that it is for the 2.6 kernel.
    There is already a driver for the 2.6 kernel in the linux-gpib project, but as the technology is old now i dont think it has been worth anyones time to update it for 3.2
    What i would like to know is what are the general differences between the 3.2 and 2.6 kernel in terms of drivers?
    Has the interface changed? Any general advice to how i should approach it?
    This is the first time i am attempting to write/modify a device driver so any suggestions would be appreciated

    well i feel foolish
