Description

This is a lab manual that provides a dozen specific lab exercises on Linux internals, illustrating how theoretical Operating System concepts are implemented in Linux. Part I presents an overview of the Linux kernel and how it handles key OS concepts such as: runtime organization and process, file, and device management. Part II presents a series of twelve progressively more difficult exercises that can be completed in a lab environment. This book can be used in conjunction with any core operating systems textbook, and is also available in a special academic package with Nutt: Operating Systems—A Modern Approach.

Features

  • Contains 12 lab exercises that utilize Linux internals to demonstrate key theoretical operating systems concepts.
  • Provides hands-on learning by allowing students to work on programs that implement the concepts that they learned in lectures and primary text readings.
  • Allows students to learn concepts on a modern operating system (Linux), while at the same time viewing the source code.
  • Includes a free copy of Mandrake Linux software.
  • Can be used in conjunction with any core operating system textbook.
