Setting Up an Environment for Writing Linux Kernel Modules in Rust
Recorded September 29, 2022
Setting Up an Environment for Writing Linux Kernel Modules in Rust, with Wedson Almeida Filho, Software Engineer.
This session will be a hands-on walkthrough of how to set the environment up to write modules for the Linux kernel using the Rust language.
In the previous Rust for Linux session, we started with a virtual machine with the environment already set up. This session is a prequel to that: we begin with a newly-installed Ubuntu machine and install software packages, clone repositories, build the kernel and a busybox-based ramdisk so that we can eventually run the kernel in qemu with networking support, and can debug it with gdb. We will also show troubleshooting steps when enabling Rust and will make slight changes to a Rust sample to demonstrate Rust tooling.
