How Linux Works reveals the inner workings of the Linux system, with in-depth coverage of topics such as device management, the boot sequence, system management basics, and networking. Author Brian Ward combines background theory and real-world examples to show you both "how" to administer Linux and "why" each technique works. This updated edition of the classic Linux reference explores the kernel in greater detail, with coverage of system calls, input and output, and file systems. With this essential guide, you'll learn everything you need to know to customize your system, solve problems, and make your computer work for you.
