About this product
- DescriptionTop Reasons people will buy this book: -Covers Linux on PPC -Top-down approach traces functionality from user space into the kernel -Lots of code commentary and examples. It walks you through the actual source code implementation. -Side by side comparison of x86 and PPC -Hands on Examples and Projects -Covers the kernel build system. The Linux Kernel Primer offers a comprehensive view of the underpinnings of the Linux kernel. This book starts with a guide of the necessary tools a developer needs to be able to understand and manipulate the source code including cryptic programming fundamentals found throughout the kernel code. It then follows up with an in depth analysis of the major subsystems including process management, memory management, scheduling, I/O, and filesystems. This book also provides information necessary to get started developing on the Linux kernel. The specifics of Intel and PowerPC architecture implementations are covered side by side providing perspective on architecture specific features and how Linux make use of them.

- Author BiographyClaudia Salzberg Rodriguez has been a Linux systems programmer for over 5 years and has worked with Linux on a wide variety of platforms ranging from embedded to High Performance systems on both Intel and PPC. She received a Bachelor of Science from Brown University in 1997 and a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. She currently works in IBM's Linux Technology Center developing the kernel and associated programming tools. Gordon Fischer has been using Linux and other Unices since 1996. He has written device drivers for RF tuners, modulators and other low-level devices. He has used both the 2.2 and 2.4 Linux kernels in enterprise settings ranging from servers to embedded devices across both i386 and PPC chipsets. He believes all code should be written in either C or LISP. Steve Smolski has been in the semiconductor business for 26 years and has always been interested in the line between hardware and software. He has worked in manufacturing, test, and development of memory, processors, and ASICS. He has written applications and device drivers for Windows, AIX, Linux, and several embedded operating systems. His favorite jobs have been in robotics and multimedia. (c) Copyright Pearson Education. All rights reserved.
