    Smile Wish to learn linux kernel programming


    Hello there,

    I have been a UNIX/Linux user for the last 8-9 years and quite interested in exploring file systems ext2/ext3 and how the Linux Kernel manages the file system. I wish to know if there is some kind of online course that can be taken so that I can understand them better in terms of concepts and also some kernel programming exercises to get some hands-on experience. If any of you have any suggestions, please kindly respond.

    Thanks

    I have a copy of O'Reilly's "Understanding the Linux Kernel" in both pdf and chm format. If you'd like, I'd be willing to email you a copy.
