Linux Kernel Development details the design and implementation of the Linux kernel, presenting the content in a manner that is beneficial to those writing and developing kernel code, as well as to programmers seeking to better understand the operating system and become more efficient and productive in their coding.
“This is the definitive book for anyone wanting to create a system based on Android. If you don’t work for Google and you are working with the low-level Android interfaces, you need this book.” —Greg Kroah-Hartman, Core Linux Kernel Developer “If you or your team works on creating custom Android images, devices, or ROM mods, you want this book! Other than the source code itself, this is the only place where you’ll find an explanation of how Android works, how the Android build system works, and an overall view of how Android is put together. I especially like the chapters...
Linux is a member of the large family of Unix-like operating systems. A relative newcomer
experiencing sudden spectacular popularity starting in the late 1990s, Linux joins such wellknown
commercial Unix operating systems as System V Release 4 (SVR4), developed by
AT&T (now owned by the SCO Group); the 4.4 BSD release from the University of California
at Berkeley (4.4BSD); Digital Unix from Digital Equipment Corporation (now Hewlett-
Packard); AIX from IBM; HP-UX from Hewlett-Packard; Solaris from Sun Microsystems; and
Mac OS X from Apple Computer, Inc....
Developer’s Library books are designed to provide practicing programmers with unique, high-quality references and tutorials on the programming languages and technologies they use in their daily work. All books in the Developer’s Library are written by expert technology practitioners who are especially skilled at organizing and presenting information in a way that’s useful for other programmers.
This book is broken into four primary sections addressing key topics that Linux programmers need to master: Linux nuts and bolts, the Linux kernel, the Linux desktop, and Linux for the Web
Effective examples help get readers up to speed with building software on a Linux-based system while using the tools and utilities that contribute to streamlining the software development process
Written by a leading developer and maintainer of the Linux kernel, Linux Kernel in a Nutshell is a comprehensive overview of kernel configuration and building, a critical task for Linux users and administrators. No distribution can provide a Linux kernel that meets all users’ needs. Computers big and small have special requirements
Offering our broad embedded Linux development experience through our development services. We can help you to introduce Linux and open-source software in your embedded products and projects: Linux kernel porting and device driver development, integration of open-source components and system building.
Linux is the name of a computer operating system and also the name of the operating system kernel. It is probably the most famous example of free software and open source development.
The first Linux version written by Linus Torvalds in 1991, when he was a student at the University of Helsinki in Finland. He worked with enthusiasm for 3 consecutive years and released Linux version 1.0 in 1994. Key component was developed and launched on the market under the GNU General Public License. So that anyone can download and view the source code of Linux...

Linux is a modem, free operating system based on UNIX standards. First developed as a small but self-contained kernel in 1991 by Linus Torvalds, with the major design goal of UNIX compatibility. Its history has been one of collaboration by many users from all around the world, corresponding almost exclusively over the Internet.

A programmer wanting to understand the workings of the Linux VM today literally has no choice but to study the kernel source code, line-by-line - an excruciatingly difficult and time-consuming task. This book dedicates itself to explaining, in detail, how the memory manager is implemented in Linux, thereby cutting down the time needed to understand it from many months to mere weeks.
Chapter 2 : Building and Running Modules
It's high time now to begin programming. This chapter introduces all the essential concepts about modules and kernel programming. In these few pages, we build and run a complete module. Developing such expertise is an essential foundation for any kind of modularized driver. To avoid throwing in too many concepts at once, this chapter talks only about modules, without referring to any specific device class.
Version Control with Git takes you step-by-step through ways to track, merge, and manage software projects, using this highly flexible, open source version control system.
Git permits virtually an infinite variety of methods for development and collaboration. Created by Linus Torvalds to manage development of the Linux kernel, it's become the principal tool for distributed version control. But Git's flexibility also means that some users don't understand how to use it to their best advantage.
Multipath TCP is a major extension to TCP that allows improving the
resource usage in the current Internet by transmitting data over
several TCP subflows, while still showing one single regular TCP
socket to the application. This document describes our experience in
writing a MultiPath TCP implementation in the Linux kernel and
discusses implementation guidelines that could be useful for other
developers who are planning to add MultiPath TCP to their networking
