Linux Documentation I've Written

Richard Gooch

  • Devfs is the Device FileSystem that I developed. This is a new and better way of managing device nodes, avoids major/minor size problems, and more.
  • A description of the VFS (Virtual Filesystem Switch). This is also included in the kernel sources. I hope it will help explain how the VFS works, and even provide a guide to how to write your own filesystem.
  • A discussion on I/O event handling under Linux.
  • A basic description of the facilities provided by my MSR patch for accessing Model-Specific Registers and Performance Monitoring Counters (PMCs).
  • I'm the maintainer of the linux-kernel mailing list FAQ. My working copy is available here. I'm the only active maintainer at the moment :-( but my time is limited so please don't flood me with requests to write more for this FAQ. A well-written (and factually correct) FAQ entry will receive a more favourable (and quicker) response.
  • A list of changes to the kernel API going from 2.0 to 2.2.
  • A list of changes to the kernel API going from 2.2 to 2.4.
  • Hot news about the latest official kernel and bugfixes.
