I'm looking for a decent overview-type Linux book that would describe things like:
- sequence of events when Linux starts up
- structure of the file system, everything's a file, /proc, /dev, /etc
I've looked at a few of the O'Reilly books but am not sure which one would be best. Maybe "Understanding the Linux Kernel"?
Running linux http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/runux4/
sequence of events when Linux starts up
from power up to bash prompt, its somewhere on tldp.org
structure of the file system, everything's a file, /proc, /dev, /etc
look at the fhs(google it)
both of those are more reference material rather than an introductory text, i would reccomend for an introduction to linux/unix the rute users guide by paul sheer(its in my bookmarks)
Re: book recommendation?
there is a Directory there......Documentation
this puppy is 5 megs including 1.6 in plain texts. Tells all about
the Kernel and what it can and cannot do, how it can be used/configured. LOTS of Info there!!! check it out.
can't find URL.......will post when I do.
