Can some one tell me Please how fasm can be used for developing kernel modules under linux!!

I want to convert a module to asm fast and i prefer using fasm as it is simple than using NASM and inline assembler

Help me fast

TIA

Hi,men Razz
I thought that linux' source is written in C...
IMHO:if you want to change something, first you must to disassm the binary file then rewite it to asm and then make some optimizations and improvements.

Most of the kernel is C/C++ source, but some parts are written in asm (for natural reasons).

I think you can write kernel module in any language that can procude files that are kernel objects or can be converted/linked to such. I'd recoment googling for a howto on kernel modules/objects
