Titel: Linux Kernel In a Nutshell
Författare: Greg Kroab-Hartman
Förlag: O'Reilly
Utgivningsår: 2006
ISBN: 0-596-10079-5
Utlånad till: Wentrup

Written by a leading developer and maintainer of the Linux kernel, this book offers you a comprehensive overview of kernel configuration and building ---a critical task for Linux administrators and developers. Because no distribution can provide a Linux kernel that meets the needs of all users, computers big and small have special requirements that demand reconfiguring and rebuilding the kernel. Linux Kernel in a Nutshell explains how to get the behavior and performance you want from Linux.
This book focuses on version 2.6 of the Linux kernel, which has brought Linux into the heart of corporate IT environments with significant changes in nearly every subsystem, particularly in the areas of memory management and block devices. With its ability to run on systems ranging from handhelds to mainframes and its support for both desktops and servers, this kernel is supremely flexible. But sometimes it needs help from the user, and that's where this in-depth reference comes in. With it, you'll learn:

The entire range of tasks in kernel building and installation, starting with downloading the source

Guidelines for making sure your tools are in sync with your version of the kernel

Reference material and discussions of related topics, such as control of kernel options at runtime

Recipes that list what you need to accomplish a wide range of tasks

The Linux kernel has drivers for nearly anything you can connect to a computer, and one key advantage of this book is found in Chapter 8, which shows how to determine exactly which drivers you need for your hardware.
Whether you're trying to get sound, provide wireless support and power management to a laptop, or incorporate enterprise features such as logical volume management on a large server, the 2.6 kernel can handle just about any job you assign to it. But to maximize its potential, you need to know choices and configuration options that Linux gives you. Linux Kernel in a Nutshell offers the insight you need.

Utgivningsår: 2003
ISBN: 059600222X
Utlånad till: Wallin

Linux® is being adopted by an increasing number of embedded systems developers, who have been won over by its sophisticated scheduling and networking, its cost-free license, its open development model, and the support offered by rich and powerful programming tools. While there is a great deal of hype surrounding the use of Linux in embedded systems, there is not a lot of practical information. Building Embedded Linux Systems is the first in-depth, hard-core guide to putting together an embedded system based on the Linux kernel. This indispensable book features arcane and previously undocumented procedures for:
·Building your own GNU development toolchain

·Using an efficient embedded development framework

·Selecting, configuring, building, and installing a target-specific kernel

·Creating a complete target root filesystem

·Setting up, manipulating, and using solid-state storage devices

·Installing and configuring a bootloader for the target

·Cross-compiling a slew of utilities and packages

·Debugging your embedded system using a plethora of tools and techniques

Details are provided for various target architectures and hardware configurations, including a thorough review of Linux's support for embedded hardware. All explanations rely on the use of open source and free software packages. By presenting how to build the operating system components from pristine sources and how to find more documentation or help, this book greatly simplifies the task of keeping complete control over one's embedded operating system, whether it be for technical or sound financial reasons.Author Karim Yaghmour, a well-known designer and speaker who is responsible for the Linux Trace Toolkit, starts by discussing the strengths and weaknesses of Linux as an embedded operating system. Licensing issues are included, followed by a discussion of the basics of building embedded Linux systems. The configuration, setup, and use of over forty different open source and free software packages commonly used in embedded Linux systems are also covered. uClibc, BusyBox, U-Boot, OpenSSH, thttpd, tftp, strace, and gdb are among the packages discussed.

Titel: Embedded Linux Development Using Eclipse
Författare: Doug Abbott
Förlag: NEWNES
Utgivningsår: 2008
ISBN: 978-0-7506-8654-9
Utlånad till: Wallin


The Eclipse environment solves the problem of having to maintain your own Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which is time consuming and costly. Embedded tools can also be easily integrated into Eclipse. The C/C++CDT is ideal for the embedded community with more than 70% of embedded developers using this language to write embedded code. Eclipse simplifies embedded system development and then eases its integration into larger platforms and frameworks.

In this book, Doug Abbott examines Eclipse, an IDE, which can be vital in saving money and time in the design and development of an embedded system. Eclipse was created by IBM in 2001 and then became an open-source project in 2004. Since then it has become the de-facto IDE for embedded developers. Virtually all of the major Linux vendors have adopted this platform, including MontVista, LynuxWorks, and Wind River.

*Details the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) essential to streamlining your embedded development process *Overview of the latest C/C++ Developer's Toolkit (CDT) *Includes case studies of Eclipse use including Monta Vista, LynuxWorks, and Wind River

About the book:
Over the last few years, Linux has grown both as an operating system and a tool for personal and business use. Simultaneously becoming more user friendly and more powerful as a back-end system, Linux has achieved new plateaus: the newer filesystems have solidified, new commands and tools have appeared and become standard, and the desktop--including new desktop environments--have proved to be viable, stable, and readily accessible to even those who don't consider themselves computer gurus.
Whether you're using Linux for personal software projects, for a small office or home office (often termed the SOHO environment), to provide services to a small group of colleagues, or to administer a site responsible for millions of email and web connections each day, you need quick access to information on a wide range of tools. This book covers all aspects of administering and making effective use of Linux systems. Among its topics are booting, package management, and revision control. But foremost in Linux in a Nutshell are the utilities and commands that make Linux one of the most powerful and flexible systems available.
Now in its fifth edition, Linux in a Nutshell brings users up-to-date with the current state of Linux. Considered by many to be the most complete and authoritative command reference for Linux available, the book covers all substantial user, programming, administration, and networking commands for the most common Linux distributions.
Comprehensive but concise, the fifth edition has been updated to cover new features of major Linux distributions. Configuration information for the rapidly growing commercial network services and community update services is one of the subjects covered for the first time.
But that's just the beginning. The book covers editors, shells, and LILO and GRUB boot options. There's also coverage of Apache, Samba, Postfix, sendmail, CVS, Subversion, Emacs, vi, sed, gawk, and much more. Everything that system administrators, developers, and power users need to know about Linux is referenced here, and they will turn to this book again and again.

Titel: MicroC/OS-II - The Real Time Kernel
Författare: Jean J Labrosse
Förlag: R&D Books
Utgivningsår: 1999
ISBN: 0-87930-543-6
Utlånad till: Wedin

This is a book about software that is freely available on the net; The MicroC/OS-II. So why buy the book? The introduction/history lesson explains it all. For those who do not know, the Author, Jean Labrosse wrote uCOS as a free embedded RTOS back in 1992. The RTOS has been ported to around 30 different processors and has enjoyed much success in the embedded field, from 8 bit CPUs upwards, in both commercial and non-commercial use.
The OS itself is a pre-emptive multitasking system that has proved itself over the years. It uses some standard OS methods like tasks, semaphores and pre-emptive scheduling. Although the source code and porting kits are available on the web the book contains much useful information on multitasking OS as a whole. Whilst it explains the microC/OS-II system (in detail) it also explains alternative methods not used in microC/OS-II. You will learn why the choices were made and the merits of all the methods. Thusthe book will be of use to those studying operating systems in general.
There are some very clear diagrams with the text for things like interrupt priority inversion, interrupt latency and scheduling. Also, the source code is very well commented and constructed, i.e. you will be able to read it and (should be able to) make sense of it. This is a book I wish I had when doing OS theory!

Utlånad till: Wedin

Allez Cuisine!
The Linux Cookbook is a collection of "recipes" for doing various tasks with your Linux machine. Where the Cookbook shines, though is the sheer number and variety of these recipes. There are plenty of varied tasks covered in the book, from the simple 'How do I copy a file?' to the more complex 'How do I archive a web site?', Six chapters deal with the various aspects of text: analyzing, searching and replacing, grammar checking, and formatting. There are even chapters dealing with the less-explored topics of customizing X, setting up reminders, and editing sound files.
Recipe Format:
The recipe format is both the book's strongest feature and its weakest point. The recipes make for a well-organized and logical structure to find information. Each point and sub-point is clearly marked, and makes for a very quick and enjoyable read. Unfortunately, topics that could benefit from a different approach are just not covered thoroughly. In the section for listing files, ls is well covered, while Midnight Commander is briefly introduced. This wouldn't bother me as much, except Midnight Commander and Mozilla URLs are given at the beginning of the section. This presentation could also lead people to think the material presented is the only way, or the best way to do these commands. There is only one method mentioned for shutting down a Linux machine; the venerable CTRL-ALT-DEL. No mention is made in the book of the shutdown command. Granted, CTRL-ALT-DEL will get the job done, but I'm not sure I would have presented it as the best, or only way to shut down a Linux machine. [T - Especially when on many distros, CTRL-ALT-DELETE is configured to restart rather than shut down the machine; this behavior, though, is configurable through /etc/inittab.
