I am a programmer looking to gain expert experience into the workings of the Linux operating system.
I have gone through many tutorials and materials on the basic workings of operating systems and have even had a pass at the source for the xv6 operating system.
I have an old laptop/notebook, which I will like to set up to go through all the examples in the free eBook "Linux device drivers". The computer in question has the following specifications:
PROCESSOR: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N280 @1.66Ghz 1.67Ghz
TYPE: 32 bit
I am looking to wipe the hard disk clean and have Linux running as the only operating system on the computer.
Also, reading Chapter 2 of the above mentioned eBook, it talks about having a kernel source tree in place to run the examples. I will appreciate if someone could explain how this will be used in the context of experimenting with the tutorials.
