Question Basic information needed


I need as much information as I can get on the following subjects:

-How storage, memory and addressing works with Linux
-Thread models used by Linux

All the information you can spare would be great!

Thanks

Seems very obvious homework to me....According to our rules, you cannot expect homework help here. You may some anyway......

For myself, I would have to have more info on what you are studying and what you already know about the problem. For example, do you understand memory and addressing on ANY computer? Do you know what a thread model is?

Have you tried Google?

Yep, just looking for homework information, and trust me, this isn't the only site I am checking out. I am just hoping for some quick answers on a couple things I am having a hard time tracking down.

It's for an Operating Systems class(senior level in college), if that helps.

Thanks for your honesty!!

Here is one out of 432,000 hits when Googling using "linux memory management":
http://tldp.org/HOWTO/KernelAnalysis-HOWTO-7.html

Similar results are surely available for your other questions. As I said, you'll get better help if you share what you already know......

That link is great, thanks.

New Request: What are some recommended searches I can do to find information on these subjects?
I'll take anymore links anyone wants to recommend.

I simply have a hard time finding good information with search engines. It's hard to pick through the links and find a page that actually tells me something I want to know.

Well, I'm not up-to-date on the lingo, so I don't get what this means. Oh well.

I recommend looking at some advanced Linux programming bibles, methinks it would be a logical place to look for things such as thread models.

As for the storage methods, again, the advanced Linux programming bibles, but, I also recommend reading into the filesystem architectures (ext2, ext3, jfs, ReiserFS, xfs, et cetera).
