That's a very general question - is it for homework? What did you get when you searched google etc. for those terms?

Though its surely a homework I will say linux is monolithic kernel. Minix is an example of microkernel os. But why dont you try to do your homework yourself first.
And how can you order people here to do your homework. Respect people who help you and give their time for your HOMEWORK.

bouncer....
some people misunderstand your sig badly and ask guys out here to even complete their homework.

I think you need to get the definition of a 'monolithic kernel'.

As for asking questions. There's nothing wrong with members asking for help with their homework. Homework that they have attempted to complete or are hung on a problem are good examples.

As a Instructor I would prefer to be approached with the questions instead of answers from a LQ member via the student. The problem is the member that wants another LQ member to do the homework. The homework in question was given to educate the member not to reinforce the LQ member who answers the question. Laziness!

So whats wrong in saying that Linux has a monolithic kernel? He asked for examples and I put them for him.
And as far as this thread goes, it smells out like a complete homework without any kind of attempt from OP to complete it himself.

Hi,

My apologies if you misinterpret my post. I should have worded my post so it addressed the thread better.

I do agree that the OP seems to have posted homework.

It's been a while since I was at school, but wouldn't you have covered this material in the class?

Generally homework is there to ensure that you understood the subject that you have just covered.

If you ask others to do your homework for you, you are not really learning the material.

This is the reason that we as a principle do not arbitrarily answer homework for you.

If you get stuck and want clarification, then let us know what your thoughts are and we will help

darwins;

If you are going to ask homework questions, I suggest at least two things:

1. Ask only one question per thread.

2. When you ask a question, include what things you have tried, where you have looked (eg Google), and what relevant material (books, etc.) that you use in school. The key is that you have to show what work you have already done, so that people can give the best advice.


Reported for closure

I'd recommend you to read "how to ask questions smart way". Because many times when you ask something like this you can find answer yourself within 60 seconds using wikipedia or google. Have you tried wikipedia, at least? it has tons of articles, including article about monolithic kernel, which has list of examples.
