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.

Titel: Building Embedded Linux Systems
Författare : Karim Yaghmour
Förlag: O'Reilly Media
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.
