just read the linux manual pages

Assuming that you already have some experience with Linux, you will want to read some books. One good place to start is the O'Reilly website.

I'm not sure how this helps---which man pages are relevant to kernel development?

neilcpp 09-13-2008 01:22 PM

manual pages - take a look
 
Let me explain to you :D- The manual pages have information about everyting relevant to the basic gnu userland programs and also pointers to information about the linux kernel. Type man man and you will see a whole section on the system call interface to the linux kernel. They are a essential starting point and provide links to related topics that might be helpful.
To suggest otherwise is rather bohemian - isn't it?

Man pages are good when one has specific questions. For a general picture of what's going on, a book is much better. I myself have found this one http://lwn.net/Kernel/LDD3/ especially useful.

I am exceedingly familiar with the man pages. I have never, however, seen anything that relates to kernel development. Perhaps you could give an example?

You'll certainly want to be familiar with C programming if you wish to get into kernel development.

you can try reading some books - The Design of the Unix Operating System was the one that Linus Torvalds read when he was starting to program Linux, so you can try that maybe? :) It was by I think, Maurice Bach.

U should try to understand wt kernel is ? Wt type of subsystems the kernel having...

Once u understand theoretically, It will help u for kernel development.

the website "http://www.osdev.org/" is good 4 u.:study: :study: :study:
