Lesson three of Linux kernel programming course on its way.

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

It will take a few hours to recover from loading, unloading, setting up, tearing down, loading and unloading piles and piles of bike race stuff but I'm confident that, by the end of the day, lesson three will be a done deal. Check back later.

UPDATE: It's up. Go wild. have fun.


Automatic loading of modules

I have a doubt. Doesn't all the modules that we compile with the kernel using 'make menuconfig' get loaded automatically during startup? I couldn't see some modules getting loaded automatically and some doesn't. What is the procedure for this?

Modules that aren't needed won't be loaded.

Not all modules that you compile with a kernel will automatically be loaded at boot time, only those that are actually required.

We know

We're aware of the time and budget pressures at most companies, normally accompanied by the plaintive cry from management of, "Yes, I know we need training on that topic, but I just can't afford to send my entire team away for three (or four or five) days to get it!" And that's where we come in.


The main focus at Crashcourse is to offer a choice of intense, 1-day, hands-on courses on specific topics in Linux and open source. And given that we already have the laptops for the delivery of that training, the idea is to show up early, set up a classroom, then spend the day teaching exactly the topic you're interested in. No travel time, and no wasted classroom time.


If we don't already have a course that addresses the topic you're interested in, drop us a note and we'll see what we can do -- our content providers can almost certainly put together a course that's precisely what you're after.

The difference

While there are a variety of sources for Linux and open source training, we at Crashcourse are taking a slightly different approach. Our philosophy is simple: exactly the training you want, and no wasted time or travel to get it.
