Forgive me if the answer to this question is obvious, but I fail to
see how this happens. To make a very long (and aggravating) story very
short, xdm was causing 'shared memory corrupt' errors in my correctly
configured ed0 driver by reading from the card's shared memory
How does reading from /dev/mem affect the memory that is being read?
Specifically, why was reading from the card's shared memory corrupting
this memory for the ed driver?
Thanks in advance,
