LINUX driver learning: How to Solve Deviceorresourcebusy when loading a module-Linux general technology-Linux programming and kernel information. For more information, see the following. After the globalmem driver module is compiled, the following error message is displayed when the module is loaded through insmod:
Linux-olyaim:/usr/src/source/globalmem # insmod globalmem. ko
Insmod: error inserting 'globalmem. ko':-1 Device or resource busy
Because it was the first LINUX driver and the LINUX operating system installed through VMware. I suspected it was a problem with the operating system. Later I thought about it. Since all the modules have been compiled, there should be no problem with the system.
Just in the cold mood, I knocked on the following command: linux-olyaim:/usr/src/source/globalmem # cat/proc/devices
It suddenly occurred that the master device number set in the globalmem program is also 254, and there should be a conflict with the above vmci. The above prompt is displayed only when loading.
Solution: replace the number of the master device that is not used in the preceding table, or directly assign the number to the system automatically.
