De modo diferente de alguns sistemas operacionais, o Linux não tenta esconder as partes importantes – ele permite que você tenha um controle completo de seu computador. Porém, para verdadeiramente dominar o Linux, é necessário entender o seu funcionamento interno, por exemplo, como o sistema inicializa, de que modo a rede funciona e o que o kernel realmente faz.<br /><br />Nesta segunda edição totalmente revisada do sempre best-seller Como o Linux funciona, o autor Brian Ward torna os conceitos por trás da operação interna do Linux acessíveis a qualquer pessoa que tenha curiosidade de saber como o sistema operacional funciona por dentro.<br /><br />Neste livro, você encontrará o tipo de conhecimento que normalmente resulta de anos de experiência realizando tarefas com muito esforço.<br /><br />Você saberá:<br />- Como o Linux é inicializado, usando de boot loaders a implementações de init (systemd, Upstart e System V);<br />- Como o kernel administra dispositivos, device drivers e processos;<br />- Como a rede, as interfaces, os firewalls e os servidores funcionam;<br />- Como as ferramentas de desenvolvimento funcionam e se relacionam com bibliotecas compartilhadas;<br />- Como escrever shell scripts eficientes.<br /><br />Você também irá explorar o kernel e analisará as tarefas fundamentais do sistema no espaço de usuário, incluindo chamadas de sistema, entrada e saída e sistemas de arquivo. Com sua combinação de informações básicas, teoria, exemplos do mundo real e explicações dadas com paciência, Como o Linux funciona ensinará o que você deve saber para resolver problemas complicados e assumir o controle de seu sistema operacional.
