A Quick Q ‘n’ A Session with Greg Kroah-Hartman

Greg K-H is the current Linux kernel maintainer for the -stable branch and is well known for his contributions to the Linux device drivers project that has enabled the kernel to support the MOST number of hardware devices, compared to any other kernel or OS. Here we present a quick interview with the man.

A Voyage to the Kernel, Day 11

[Segment 3.1] We’re entering a new phase in our journey—kernel programming. In the first part, we’ll cover a broad introduction to the Linux platform for newbies, along with some history.
