Matt Domsch's Linux page
I'm a Technology Strategist in Dell's Office of the CTO. My
engineering teams are responsible for ensuring that Linux runs well on
all Dell servers, workstations,
desktops, and notebooks.
Dell's Linux-related Web Sites
Most of the information on this site has migrated to http://linux.dell.com. I'll only
keep personal information here, and will keep Dell-related information
- WestHost stuff
- access-to-shutterfly.py, a hack to
convert Microsoft Access Address Book databases into a
Shutterfly-acceptable CSV file so I didn't have to retype my whole
address book to have them mail out Christmas cards.
Open Source projects I've contributed to (historical)
- IA-64 kernel port
- Various minor Linux kernel patches
- aacraid, acenic, megaraid, qla1280, and other device driver
- ip_masq_pptp kernel module patches
- Added PCI-X support to pciutils
- crc32 cleanups - Lots of things,
particularly ethernet drivers, use the same crc32 code.
- watchdog timer module parameters for
timeout=X and nowayout= to override defaults.
- Other random patches
- BIOS Enhanced Disk Device Services 3.0 support
to the i386 kernels (2.5.44 and above).
- I maintain DKMS, Dynamic
Kernel Module Support. It is designed to create a framework where
kernel dependant module source can reside so that it is very easy to
rebuild modules as you upgrade kernels. This will allow Linux vendors
to provide driver drops without having to wait for new kernel releases
while also taking out the guesswork for customers attempting to
recompile modules for new kernels.
- Dynamic PCI Device ID list for device drivers. This allows a user
to pass additional PCI device IDs to drivers at runtime, to augment
the static list of IDs compiled into the driver. Included in
