Im trying to port a simple filesystem developed for
windows to Linux.
Is there any documentation or a good web-site?
that I can start reading?
I would like to know in which source file in the kernel is the IP layer Version field set (for example 0x4) in case of IPv4.
I have been browsing thro' the /net folder in http://lxr.linux.no/source/ for kernel 2.4.2 but am unable to find it.
It really doesn't matter which kernel version, but, if someone can point to me at where this entry is checked/modified/used, it will be helpful.
I'm running Fedora Core 1, and I've followed the instructions posted by Jeremy (http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/799?PHPSESSID=b6132127e58688fe1ce8f156b6...)
on how to upgrade to the 2.6 kernel 2 times now, and I seem to be leaving out a crucial step. Here is what I do:
1)Download the kernel sources
2)unzip them, then run "make xconfig" and configure them as necessary
3)make bzImage && make modules && make modules_install, and everything there goes just fine
Is he some sort of enigma or a mythological character like a penguin?
I hear so much about him but I have no idea what he looks like. Everyone knows what Bill Gates looks like - plenty of photos, and a great gif of him being hit with a tasty ream pie (he even has a topic in this forum!) but I have never seen a photo of Linus Torvalds.
For a project I'm working on, I am performing an experimental modification in ip_output.c. After hh_output (dev_queue_xmit) is called, I check the return status. If it is NET_XMIT_DROP (a dropped packet), I would like to resend the packet. However, when I do that, the kernel hangs with a NULL pointer exception Oops. My thought is that the code called within hh_output probably frees the skb somehow.

I'm having trouble installing linux SuSE 9.0 on a Dell PowerEdge 2200 server with SCSI Adaptec AIC7880, the installation program keeps saying can't find hard disks, I loaded the SCSI aicxxxx module before installation and still no go.
I already installed SuSE 8.0 before on that same machine and the above method worked, but for some reason it doesn't know with SuSE 9.0
What do I need to do here??
OpenEnterprise Trends.com posted an ineresting interview with Linux creator Linus Torvalds. From the introduction:
"Last month, Geekcruises' Linux Lunacy cruise to Alaska proved that Linux and Open Source are hot enough topics to even warm up Northern waters. The feature of the trip was a candid Q&A with Linux creator Linus Torvalds.
Version 3.1.14 of the 3.x branch of the procps utilities was recently announced:
"This release finishes the implementation of NPTL thread display in ps. The -m and m options are now supported, as well as the -L, -T, and H options seen previously. Thread display now interacts properly with sorting. Some parts of thread support require the 2.6.0-test8 kernel; the 2.6.0-test6 kernel is enough for minimal thread awareness.
Read on for the full announcement.
I have a friend. He runs a Linux Administration Institute. Though it is small it is really successful for the past 2 year.
This is a Linux Course, I am planning to get. Please go through and tell me what’s missing or worth adding to this course.
Also if any of you know, where can I get detailed Red-hat Linux Certification Course-ware (whats covered in the complete course), then please guide me to it.
