Smile Examples about Logical,Linear and Physical address in Linux Memory Addressing


Hello All,

This is my first mail to our community.Really it's very useful anyone.Now i am learing about Linux Memory addressing.I want to know indepth in Memory Management.

I go through some documents then i have some doubts.

Why we go for Segmentation and paging concepts in Linux Memory Management.Now my Linux system based on i386 processor.My major doubt is why we follow segmentaion and paging concepts.It's depends upon Arch. of i386 processor or
any other reason.

Why we convert logical address into Linear address
then convert Linear into Physical address.Is't possible to
convert Logical into Physical address directly.
Could you explain indetaily about Logical,Linear
and Physical address and also give example for each Addresses
(logical,linear and Physical)it'll help for me lot.
If my question is wrong plz correct me.

I am expecting our community reply.

Thankx & Regards,
Murali.S

The original post sounded suspiciously like homework questions - there is a LQ rule specifically about this.

I choose not to answer homework, but if some-one has a question after reasonable research (say finding the article you posted, and asking specific questions about it), I'm happy to help if I can.
