Professional Linux Kernel Architecture

You’ll take a look at the peculiarities of various architectures supported by the kernel, explore the assorted tools and means of working efficiently with the kernel sources, and investigate the numerous social aspects of kernel development and the Linux kernel community.

Ultimately, this insightful book will serve as an indispensable step towards understanding structure and implementation of the Linux kernel.

A solid foundation of C programming is required. Wrox Professional guides are planned and written by working programmers to meet the real-world needs of programmers, developers, and IT professionals. Focused and relevant, they address the issues technology professionals face every day.

They provide examples, practical solutions, and expert education in new technologies, all designed to help programmers do a better job. With the confirmed capacity of being the wfox experimentalist in the known universe, he sticks to the theoretical rachitecture of his profession, which is especially reassuring considering his constant fear of accidentally destroying the universe.

He is also the author of a book about typesetting with LaTeX and has written numerous articles that have been translated into seven languages in total.

Mountains especially have the power to outrival even the Linux kernel. Consequently, he considers planning and accomplishing a first-ascent expedition to the vast arctic glaciers of east Greenland to be the really unique achievement in his life.

As an avid reader, he is proud that despite the two-digit number of computers present in his living room, the volume required for books still occupies a larger share.

Professional Linux Kernel Architecture – Wrox

There are other books easier to read, but they don’t go nearly as deep as this one. This book is perfect for professionals. It’s not meant for students. The only reason why I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because this book is starting to be outdated.

It would be great to have an updated revision. Many things have changed since kernel 2. Overall this book does have some irritating issues, but it is worthwhile text for programmers who are starting out with the Linux kernel. Even though Linux is a moving target, this book will save you some headaches and surfing message boards on the internet.

Is it better than Love’s book? No probably not, but it is different. This book provides some insight into coding and specific advice that will help you get past the Linux learning curve. Even if you never code, you will at least understand how to solve your own system problems. The real issue with this book is organization and the index is horrible.

The overviews are not as good as Love’s, and as one reviewer mentioned he is not concise.

But he does walk you through more of kernl code and gives you the various coding housekeeping tasks you must peform in the kernel. I think Love does a better job with the high level overviews, and he does provide analysis of tradeoffs. Either way this book is worth the money, since if it saves you reading kernel sourcecode to learn, then trust me it is worth the price. A bit dated in but a very clear exposition. Every Linux kernel and driver developer should have this book.


Wish the author would update the book. However given the size of the book and the effort involved, I can understand if he does not. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I wanted to buy the book a couple of years ago when it was paperback book. I bought the Kindle format ebook this time. I can read it on my Kindle and PCs. The contents of the book are very important and need-to-know when you are seriously considering Linux application development, even on Android, etc.

I use the book as primary reference for the applications on Linux. I have read the book, I love it, highly recommend to those who want to deeply understand the internal of Linux Kernel. Although Linux Kernel is being rapidly updated, but this book is still valuable.

I hope the author continues his work for second edition. The content is very clear and effective. The content is very clear and effective, but the page is too thin and coarse.

Book in good conditions. And the content is amazing. I purchased this book to use as a reference. I work in a group that does device driver development. I’ve picked up this book twice to look at since purchasing. Both times I’ve been disappointed. First to find out about calling device driver routines without invoking the big kernel lock.

I didn’t find the information. I did find info in the other book: Today I wanted to learn about how to do profiling or in other words which threads are taking up the most CPU time. Couldn’t find anything in this book, but did find a small amount in the other book. Seems every section of this book starts with an intro of why the information is important.

Frankly I know why it is important to me, and I would prefer all of that text be deleted. See all 20 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? Linux Kernel Development 3rd Edition Paperback.
