Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using FC9, I want to write a module that will always show current time after booting.But for that I need not only to load module using insmod/modprobe, but also to compile that module during boot time.How can I perform this 2 steps correctly.
Fedora's akmod's compile during the boot process, you might want to download the source code of one of them and see how it works. Since you want to write a module, that would be a good place to start. Finding the source code for Fedora 9 might be a problem though, since it reached its end of life over a year ago.
# /etc/modprobe.preload: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line. Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY
# for old kernel use /etc/modules
I'm using evdev for my Joystick, but it also tracks mouse and keyboard movements.
If your edits to modprobe.conf did not work, look for a module that may be loading before, taking the place/blocking of the correct module
"lsmod" usually displays such facts.
Be careful of spelling, it will make a difference!
Mandriva is very similar, but not the same as Fedora.(imo)
I have written a programme in gcc
struct tm *tblock;
timer = time(NULL);
tblock = localtime(&timer);
It has been compiled in gcc.But in kernel space it hasn't been solved. Please can anyone suggest the kernel space version of this code.
Gourab Das Fedora 9 is unsupported - there are NO updates ti it and there have beed NO updates for a year now AND there WILL NEVER BE and updates to it
please do your self AND THE REST OF THE NET A VERY BIG SECURITY FAVOR and install a supported version
OR a long life distro like CentOS 5.4 or RHEL 5.4 !!!!
