With Kernel Projects for Linux, Professor Gary Nutt provides a series of 12 lab exercises that illustrate how to implement core operating system concepts in the increasingly popular Linux environment.
The makeup of the manual allows readers to learn concepts on a modern operating system—Linux—while at the same gay viewing the source code. This hands-on manual complements any core OS book by demonstrating how theoretical concepts are realized in Linux. Part I presents an overview of kernnel Linux design, offering some insight into such topics as runtime organization and process, file, and device management. Part II consists of a graduated set of exercises where readers move from inspecting various aspects of the operating systems’s internals to developing their own functions and data structures for the Linux kernel.
This book is designed for programmers who need to learn the fundamentals of operating systems linuc a modern OS.
The progressively harder exercises allow them to learn concepts in a hands-on setting. I have written Kernel Projects for Linux as a textbook to be used in the classroom it is NOT a self-help reference book. Linux is an exciting OS projecte of its open source policy, resulting rapid development, and importance in the commercial world. This book is intended to introduce the Version 2. The book begins with a page overview of the kernel.
The second part of the book is a dozen programming problems with graduated difficulty. Choosing problems in the Linux environment is especially difficult since most desirable additions or modifications have already been done.
Each problem has an explanation of relevant concepts the student will need to solve the problem, and some hints about how to solve the problem. As an applied software book, the explanations and examples are bound to meet the disapproval of some readers! Even so, the reviewers instructors at very well-respected universities and my students have found the book to be accurate and useful.
Since it is a textbook rather than a technical reference book, its value would be greatly diluted by publishing the solutions to the dozen exercises, therefore as is traditional in the textbook market the publisher and I agreed to only distribute solutions to instructors — sorry. This is a lab manual that provides a dozen specific lab exercises on Linux internals, illustrating how theoretical Operating System concepts are implemented in Linux.
Part I presents an overview of the Linux kernel and how it handles key OS concepts such as: Part II presents a series of twelve progressively more difficult exercises that can nhtt completed in a lab environment. This book can be used in conjunction with any core operating systems textbook, and is also available in a special academic package with Nutt: Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

This book is by no means a self help reference book and hence, need to be bought by people who has the time and initiative to diligently dig through Linux literature, theory, pertinent to each excercise group.
I have given 5 stars to this book because this book is what it claims to be. There are a group of projects with very nicely graded difficulty level. Each group contains very good pointers as to how to attack the problem and where to look for, in order to solve them. The absence of a full fledged solution is what I like best about this book. The projecs has very wisely kept back the solutions, because there is no better way to learn Linux then to look into relevant parts of the source code.
But without this book the word “Relevant Parts” doesnt makes sense, because the Linux kernel is a huge chunk of code, and for any beginner its absolutely overwhelming. Its even hard to decide, that where to start reading the source code.
Thats where this book is very very helpful. Each excercise exposes the reader to a very well defined part of the kernel, and the reader gets a thorough understanding after she has successfully solved that part. I feel that this book is one of its kind in hary market. However the book couldve done without the fundamentals, because cramming linux or any UNIX like OS fundamentals in 49 pages is a sheer compromise.
Instead the book couldve nutt some more problems, to span the entire width of Linux. For the price i spent i am satisfied with the book. Book is definitively great, but the quality of the book was also at satisfactory level. This was actually quite an interesting book. I found the assignments interesting, and challenging yet able to be completed for the most part. Now we come to the problem.
When you are asked to answer a question in an assignment, and you contact the author of the book and the “creators” of Linux linnux both agree the question can not be answered as asked, we get into a bit of weirdness. Even the author says the “official” solution to some of the problems in the book are done in exactly the way he requests them not to be done in the book, gafy because it is impossible to solve the problem in Linux as asked. So, if you’re looking for something that makes you think about ways to accomplish assigned tasks, this is a good book.
Linux Kernel & Device Driver Programming
If you want a book without errors and having all questions capable of being answered as asked, kerne, is not as good projectss a book. Therefore I give it 3 stars, to put it right in the middle. This book is based on a previousvery old kernel of Linux Need I say more? Well, I will anyways And here is ffor it starts getting ridiculous and the book goes downhill because the newer versions of the kernel have a TOTALLY different procedure from writing modules and device drivers The examples might work with the version of Linux included with the book but that too is a very old version.
This can be a very good book if it is updated to programming the 2. I would suggest looking at kernelnewbies. Also “Writing Linux Device Drivers” which is available free of cost in pdf format is a good book. I learned so much.
The idea of this book is good. However the implementation is very poor.
COP Linux Kernel and Device Driver Programming
There are obviously errors and inaccuracies in guidelines and hand-on tips provided for linux in the exercises. And author can not even provide solutions to the exercises in the book on public website. It give up half of its value. It’s an immature book, which is surprised to get published by accredited Addison Wesley. This title is the best introduction to Linux kernel.
Most of the Linux kernel books consider that readers are experts to operating systems concepts or maybe that they belong to the Linux code maintainers “ring”.
Kernel Projects for Linux – Problems solutions
This certainly is ntt the case with “Linux Kernel Projects” where before each exercise every theme is explained well to the averange reader. See all 10 reviews.
