    Linux Kernel Development Comment

    1. I have been always fascinated with operating systems After majoring computer science and still not knowing the inside of them, I felt like a joke So after reading the Code and this, and various other books too, I am coming closer to understanding the inner workings of the hard parts of software architectures I have read this book, and currently reading it second time There is really a lot of interesting things going under the cover I was in love with CFS and other terms which was always alien to [...]


    2. We read this as a book club on our dev team It was well written and approachable for an advanced developer Great survey of Linux Internals and reads like a book There are even a few jokes in here I tried reading similar books, and this one just kind of stuck.


    3. Developing an operating system is hard and so is the material in this book It is rather technical and doesn t really explain the concept very well If you have prior experience in BSD or equivalent kernel development, then it will be a peace of cake The author tends to throw some kernel specific features A at you explaining how it is implemented in Linux and expecting that you have the common sense to figure that every kernel has to have feature A.


    4. Good intro to Linux Kernel newbies who want to know how the kernel works and how to modify it.Best used while cross referencing with current Kernel documentation so you know what in the book is obsolete deprecated and what APIs have been changed or introduced.


    5. I ve been somewhat of a novice kernel hacker for many years now and the few pieces of the kernel that I can say that I understand very well have been small, hard won victories for me There are a number of Linux kernel books out there, and most novice hackers will find, as I have, that it s very difficult to just go in cold and learn about a specific kernel subsystem from these books Books like Linux Kernel Internals , Understanding the Linux Kernel and Understanding the Linux Virtual Memory Mana [...]


    6. This is the second time I m reading this book and this book is ing awesome Although this book is a first edition I believe a 3rd edition is available nowadays this book still applies partly because Linux is still in a 2.6.x compatible version, it would probably have been a different story if this edition was published in the 2.4.x era to today s reality AND it s just a pleasure to read this book It only happens in very rare occasions that an author is capable to describe a technical subject at t [...]


    7. This book is a great reference manual for Linux APIs The chapters are laid out so that readers can ease into the complex subject of Operating System The book serves as an important source for my Operating System class, and it helps me understand how different pieces fit together.Linux Kernel code base is big, lack of clear structure to beginners The book explains in details how each pieces fit together, the functions of each API calls It is a great book to have by desk for people who do low leve [...]


    8. Very good book for beginners to understand the Linux kernel API s and mechanisms It has a good complete chapter devoted to Bottom Halves mechanisms like SoftIRQ, Tasklets, Work queues, etc A must read for Linux enthusiasts However, it lacks exercises and some text is old 2.6.xx as compared to the rapidly changing Linux kernel versions 3.16.xx Looking forward to buy the 4th edition.


    9. Excellent book even if you are NOT a kernel developer, it really helped me to understand how the Linux kernel works and solved a lot of my misunderstandings dentries, path, buffer page cache etcProcess Management, scheduling, System calls, MM, VFS, Block I O layer, Process Address Space, Page Cache and Page Writeback, Modules, Debugging, these chapters are brilliant.


    10. Not much difference with the previous edition A good high level book The author could have given credit where credit is due for some of the work done around the scheduler.


    11. overall, it was a good book the chapters about VFS and the bloxk IO layer were xonfusing, though one thing I would like to see is a chapter on turning the kernel system on off and reboot ing.



    12. Good book Anyone with basics, I would personally recommend to first start with this book and then to advanced material.




    13. A great read Concise enough that it covers all the high level concepts equipping one to dive into the code.





    14. Definitely one of the best book about the linux kernel I have ever read If you are familiar with the concepts, and want to learn implementation details, this is the book for you.


    15. Very good introduction on Linux kernel and general operating systems concept A must read for everyone willing to involve with the kernel.



    16. Good high level intro to the Kernel I read it as part of an OS course and it really sparked my interest both in the Kernel and open source software.Stop reading and start hacking


    17. I enjoyed learning about design, implementation and interfaces, easy to understand and quite and enjoyable I just want to see if I can put to use the new information and try coding with it now.
