Understanding the Linux Kernel
€ 39.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what order. It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn´t kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks. The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. Probing beyond superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Important Intel-specific features are discussed. Relevant segments of code are dissected line by line. But the book covers more than just the functioning of the code; it explains the theoretical underpinnings of why Linux does things the way it does. This edition of the book covers Version 2.6, which has seen significant changes to nearly every kernel subsystem, particularly in the areas of memory management and block devices. The book focuses on the following topics: - Memory management, including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct memory Access (DMA) - The Virtual Filesystem layer and the Second and Third Extended Filesystems - Process creation and scheduling - Signals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device drivers - Timing - Synchronization within the kernel - Interprocess Communication (IPC) - Program execution Understanding the Linux Kernel will acquaint you with all the inner workings of Linux, but it´s more than just an academic exercise. You´ll learn what conditions bring out Linux´s best performance, and you´ll see how it meets the challenge of providing good system response during process scheduling, file access, and memory management in a wide variety of environments. This book will help you make the most of your Linux system.

Linux Kernel Networking
€ 41.99 *

Linux Kernel Networking takes you on a guided in-depth tour of the current Linux networking implementation and the theory behind it. Linux kernel networking is a complex topic, so the book won´t burden you with topics not directly related to networking. This book will also not overload you with cumbersome line-by-line code walkthroughs not directly related to what you´re searching for; you´ll find just what you need, with in-depth explanations in each chapter and a quick reference at the end of each chapter. Linux Kernel Networking is the only up-to-date reference guide to understanding how networking is implemented, and it will be indispensable in years to come since so many devices now use Linux or operating systems based on Linux, like Android, and since Linux is so prevalent in the data center arena, including Linux-based virtualization technologies like Xen and KVM.

Device drivers literally drive everything you´re interested indisks, monitors, keyboards, modemseverything outside the computer chip and memory. And writing device drivers is one of the few areas of programming for the Linux operating system that calls for unique, Linux-specific knowledge. For years now, programmers have relied on the classic Linux Device Drivers from O´Reilly to master this critical subject. Now in its third edition, this bestselling guide provides all the information you´ll need to write drivers for a wide range of devices. Over the years the book has helped countless programmers learn: - how to support computer peripherals under the Linux operating system - how to develop and write software for new hardware under Linux - the basics of Linux operation even if they are not expecting to write a driver The new edition of Linux Device Drivers is better than ever. The book covers all the significant changes to Version 2.6 of the Linux kernel, which simplifies many activities, and contains subtle new features that can make a driver both more efficient and more flexible. Readers will find new chapters on important types of drivers not covered previously, such as consoles, USB drivers, and more. Best of all, you don´t have to be a kernel hacker to understand and enjoy this book. All you need is an understanding of the C programming language and some background in Unix system calls. And for maximum ease-of-use, the book uses full-featured examples that you can compile and run without special hardware.Today Linux holds fast as the most rapidly growing segment of the computer market and continues to win over enthusiastic adherents in many application areas. With this increasing support, Linux is now absolutely mainstream, and viewed as a solid platform for embedded systems. If you´re writing device drivers, you´ll want this book. In fact, you´ll wonder how drivers are ever written without it.

You have probably come across the term Linux once or twice. During the 1990s, when Microsoft came under fire and even went to court for monopolistic practices, the popularity of Linux began to soar as an alternative. It presented distinct advantages over the Microsoft empire by enabling people to creatively build and contribute to the software’s kernel. But what exactly is Linux? Isn’t it some old-style throwback that requires you to type in commands for any program that you want to use? Why would you want to bother with it over options like Windows or Mac OS? If you have found yourself asking those questions, then this audiobook is exactly what you are looking for. It explains what exactly Linux is, both as an operating system and as a movement. It presents the ways that Linux is beneficial over other operating systems, in spite of (or, in fact, because of) it being free and open source. It explains what is meant by the term open source and how you can contribute to the community by creating and submitting your own improvements to the Linux protocols. It also gives you the basic background information that you need in order to start coding for Linux. Whether you are just getting started with the world of Linux and/or programming, or whether you are a seasoned pro who has been in the game for a while, this audiobook has something for everyone. It is the first in a series on Linux programming and is sure to make you a star with a solid understanding of how to use Linux and program with it. Listen to this audiobook today and get started learning Linux! 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Bahl. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/107588/bk_acx0_107588_sample.mp3.
