Hi,

 

Is it possible to create a Library File in Kernel like what we can create the .a file in user space.

 

Best Regards, Sreedhar.

a "static library" is simply an archive (.a) -- a collection of objects.  the kernel build system does not use archives itself, but there is no inherent limitation that prevents people from using them.

 

that said, the kbuild system is pretty powerful and really shouldnt need to use the archive format ...

Hi Mike,

 

I understood from your response that it is possible to do the archiving of object files into .a files.

 

I want to make some of the developed c files into .a files

 

Can you tell me the procedure how to do the archiving of kernel files and linking them.

Anything you can do on a desktop - you can do on a Blackfin. We don't have the time to teach you Linux (sorry).

 

I think you need to review the avalible options (books, websites, forums, etc) for that - have a look at:
