Produktbeschreibung
Unlike some operating systems, Linux doesn t try to hide the important bits from you it gives you full control of your computer. But to truly master Linux, you need to understand its internals, like how the system boots, how networking works, and what the kernel actually does.

In this completely revised second edition of the perennial best seller How Linux Works, author Brian Ward makes the concepts behind Linux internals accessible to anyone curious about the inner workings of the operating system. Inside, you ll find the kind of knowledge that normally comes from years of experience doing things the hard way. You ll learn:
How Linux boots, from boot loaders to init implementations (systemd, Upstart, and System V)
How the kernel manages devices, device drivers, and processes
How networking, interfaces, firewalls, and servers work
How development tools work and relate to shared libraries
How to write effective shell scripts

You ll also explore the kernel and examine key system tasks inside user space, including system calls, input and output, and filesystems. With its combination of background, theory, real-world examples, and patient explanations, How Linux Works will teach you what you need to know to solve pesky problems and take control of your operating system.

Rezensionen
"Comprehensive . . . The third edition of How Linux Works is a good introduction to Linux that also is organized such that readers can flip through and go as far into a subject as necessary to answer questions at hand, skipping the more extensive explanations that aren t crucial for their current topic of interest. In that regard, the book is a nice reference to have on the bookshelf."
Lee Teschler, Microcontroller Tips

"The book is very thorough from looking down into the hardware, through delving into how the kernel functions, to covering the most important commands, file systems, swap space, boot loaders, networking and more. In fact, I'm not at all surprised that this book has survived to its 3rd edition both because it's a genuinely good book and because Linux has gone through some serious changes in the past seven years, especially related to such things as its use of containers, the flexibility of logical volume manager and the continued move toward virtualization. . . . This is a very thorough and up-to-date book. After using Unix and then Linux for nearly 40 years, I am still getting a lot of value and significant insights from reading it."
Sandra Henry-Stocker, longstanding Linux journalist

Dives straight into the transparent depths of Linux-based operating systems and shows us how all the pieces fit together.
