A book-in-progress about the linux kernel and its insides.
The goal is simple - to share my modest knowledge about the insides of the linux kernel and help people who are interested in linux kernel insides, and other low-level subject matter. Feel free to go through the book Start here
Generating eBooks and PDFs - documentation
We have a Google Group mailing list for learning the kernel source code. Here are some instructions about how to use it.
Send an email with any subject/content to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Then you will receive a confirmation email. Reply it with any content and then you are done.
If you have Google account, you can also open the archive page and click Apply to join group. You will be approved automatically.
Send emails to mailing list
Just send emails to
email@example.com. The basic usage is the same as other mailing lists powered by mailman.
