Publisher: The Shuttleworth Foundation
Number of pages: 159

Description:
This part of the course is intended to bridge the gap between the courses that you have attended and the more advanced/internals-based knowledge required for the true understanding of the advanced topics and supporting a UNIX or Linux system. Please take note that this is a course of technical concepts written in simple terms to assist with the understanding of how the internals of the operating system hangs together - it is intended to assist with the administration of the operating system itself and the theory can be applied to both the UNIX and the Linux operating systems.
