Date: August 21, 2008 at 7 p.m.
Location: TheCodeFactory, 246 Queen St., 2nd floor
Speaker: Bart Trojanowski
NOTE: there is no need to email to reserve a spot this time, we should
have space for everyone.
The Linux Kernel Walkthrough sessions aim to give OCLUG members, and
visitors, a guided tour of the Linux kernel. The meetings start with the
MC, Bart Trojanowski, giving an overview of the topic, followed by a
free form reading of the sources. Participants are encouraged to take
lead of the event and steer the direction of the adventure.
This months kernel walkthrough topic will be "booting". Bart will start
with a brief overview of PC hardware and software involved in bringing
up a Linux system. He will then walk through what the Linux kernel does
before the user is greeted by a login prompt.
Bart hopes that this meeting will attract people of different levels of
knowledge and different areas of expertise, with individuals taking the
floor to answer questions in their area of the kernel.
