Overview

Since the introduction of Linux version 1.2 in March 1995, a worldwide community has evolved derived from programmers who were attracted by the reliability and flexibility of this completely free operating system. Now at version 2.0, Linux is no longer simply the operating system of choice for hackers, but is being successfully employed in commercial software development, by Internet providers and in research and teaching.
This book is written for anybody who wants to learn more about Linux. It explains the inner mechanisms of Linux from process scheduling to memory management and file systems, and will tell you all you need to know about the structure of the kernel, the heart of the Linux operating system.

Editorial Reviews

Phil Hughes
If you intend to write kernel code or a kernel module, or just want to know how the kernel of a Linux system works, this book is an excellent source of information . . . I highly recommend this book for anyone who is serious about writing code or who wants to know what is in the Linux kernel. -- Linux Journal
