README.md

linux-insides

A book-in-progress about the linux kernel and its insides.

The goal is simple - to share my modest knowledge about the insides of the linux kernel and help people who are interested in linux kernel insides, and other low-level subject matter. Feel free to go through the book Start here

Questions/Suggestions: Feel free about any questions or suggestions by pinging me at twitter @0xAX, adding an issue or just drop me an email.

Docker

In order to run your own copy of the book with gitbook within a local container:

  1. Enable Docker experimental features with vim or another text editor

     sudo vim /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service
    

    Then add --experimental=true to the end of the ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H fd:// line and save.

    Eg: ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H fd:// --experimental=true

    Then, you need to reload and restart the Docker daemon:

     systemctl daemon-reload
     systemctl restart docker.service
    
  2. Run docker image

    make run
    
  3. Open your local copy of linux insides book under this url http://localhost:4000 or run make browse
