Booting Sequence and the code


Hello Everybody,

I am new to Linux!

I want to Learn linux but right from the basics (start)

Like what is the flow of the booting and where, in the code can i see what is happening? ( i heard we can see the code of linux)

May be my question is senseless but i am from microcontrolles background and in a habbit of seeing the code from 0000h in the menory!

Thanks and Regards,
Kapil

If you have a look in /var/log, you'll find something like dmesg or boot.log or boot.msg etc.
Please add your distro (inc version) to your profile, so we can give more accurate advice.

It seems that you need to install GCC. It will be available using your package manager.

I'm guessing that I'm not the only one here who has no clue what PCquest is.....please post what it is based on. Check their website or distrowatch.

For any thing,You will have to install GCC.after that you can take kernel code from kernel.org and compile it (if in case you dont have source code of your running distro).
So then,you'll have a running kernel and its source code.
