Digging around in the core code

Posted 03-04-2009 at 06:09 PM by softwizz

Due to a combination of misconfiguration and a buggy bootprom/kernel interface, I just spent several days digging around in the 2.6.18.8 kernel bring-up code, looking for why my nominated RFS device was being ignored.

On the journey I noticed several things that may be worthy of comment (or on the other hand, maybe all of the following is well-trodden territory for the guys on here - judge for yourselves).

Strange linking

Posted 03-04-2009 at 05:02 PM by Ole Juul

In the beginning....

I have tinkered with Linux on and off for many years. I have to confess that I was one of those who would start an installation (and sometimes succeed) only to blow it off and install Windows. I was easily frustrated.

My company made a concerted effort to go 100% Windows just as Windows 2003 was about to go RTM so with help from a consultant we build and deployed our first forest. Shortly after that we discovered that there were legacy UNIX apps that would not port over. Hot on the...
