Linux Internals Book Free 11



Writing books is not a new experience for me. I've been doing it since the age of 10. Most of these booksgather proverbial dust on this or that hard disk, others are being pampered for limelight, others yet have beenabandoned. There's no better place to announce the demise of one project as at the birth of another. As you mayhave guessed, my super-extensive mother-of-all Linux topics book is not going to be published any time soon, assimple system administration no longer excites me. The single Apachechapter remains a proof-of-concept poetic demonstration, an orphan of what might have been.Instead, I have started casting my eye toward more advanced, more complex topics. Like Linux crash analysis. This is a subject that has lots of unansweredmail threads and plain text documents scattered all over the place, inaccessible to almost everyone, save thetiny percentage of super geeks. Whether this should be so or not makes no difference. There comes a need, therecomes a man with an idea, and that man writes a book.My personal and professional interest in the last three years has taken me down the path of Linux kernelsecrets, all the way into assembly code, where magic happens. I felt the desire to learn what happens in theheart of the system. Like most technical topics, there was some information to be found online, but it wascryptic, ambiguous, partial, nerdy, or just not there at all. Dedoimedo is a reflection of how things ought tobe after all. I'm writing guides and tutorials and reviews the way I perceive the world - friendly andaccessible toward normal human beings. In a way, every article is an attempt to make things a little clearer, alittle more understandable. Step by step, nothing omitted, you know the mantra.Linux kernel crash is no exception. If you're familiar with my website, you know this book is just acompilation of seven in-depth tutorials already posted and available freely for everyone's use. But there's adifference between some HTML code, scattered around, and a beautiful stylish book written in LaTeX. Not muchdifference, I admit, but still worth this fancy foreword.This book is a product of several factors. First, my ego demands recognition, so I'm making the best effort ofappearing smart in the posh circles. Nothing like a book to make you look wise and whatnot. Second, the bookreally makes sense, when you take the entire crash series into consideration. Starting with crash tools viacollection all the way to analysis, plus some extras and general tips. It's an entire world, really, and itbelongs inside a single, comprehensive volume. Third, half a dozen Dedoimedo readers contacted me by mail,asking that I compile my crash material into one document. I did hint at a possible PDF given popular demand,so here we go.Linux Kernel Crash Book is 180 pages, 120 lovely screenshots and tons of excellent information. You won'teasily find better content on this subject, I guarantee you that. You get this book for free, no stringsattached. There's some copyright and disclaimer, mainly designed to protect my intellectual rights and hardwork, but nothing draconian. Be fair and enjoy the knowledge shared with love and passion. If you happen toreally like this book, think about donating a few bucks. An officially published book would probably costbetween 20 and 40 dollars.Now, this is no humble man's marketing plot. I surely do not expect to get miraculously rich this way. If youtake my Golf GTI donation scheme as an example, it's a long way before my pocketsswell with booty. However, like any egocentric human being, I love praise and recognition for my work. If youcannot or do not wish to donate money, then spread the word and lavish me with compliments. That will do,too.I am also considering getting the book printed, whether through self-publishing or by insinuating my charm intoan editor's heart. So if you're looking for talented fresh new blood to spatter the walls of glory, I'm yourman. If you are a publisher and like my style and knowledge, don't be shy, email me.My readers, worry not! Even if this book goes pro, the online tutorials will always remain there, for free. Theemphasis on always is within the Planck limits of time and space, excluding an occasional mega-meteor strike ora cosmic gamma ray burst event.I guess that's all. This book is waiting for you to read it. Enjoy!

The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or non-commercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.


We have designed this License to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.


Note: If you want to know more about how terminals and job control are intended to work, the book "The Linux Programming Interface" provides a nice introduction to how these older parts of the userspace API are supposed to work. It doesn't describe any of the kernel internals though, since it's written as a reference for userspace programming. And it's from 2010, so it doesn't have anything in it about new APIs that have showed up over the last decade.


The books featured in this article are all available for free, and many of them are released under an open source license. Some of the text are designed for beginners, others help developers get to grip with the somewhat ugly internals of Git. So get reading, learning and sharing code.
