Boston Linux Meeting Wednesday, November 15, 2006 Porting the Linux kernel

When: November 15, 2006 7:00PM (6:30 for Q&A)
Topic: Porting the Linux kernel
Moderator: Jon Masters, Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat Software
Location:  MIT Building E51 Room 335

    Session from LinuxWorld Expo UK, Oct 2006:

    Have you ever wondered how Linux is able to run on everything from
your laptop to your PDA or even your cellphone? As a highly portable
modern OS, Linux has been ported to more platforms than any other
Operating System in history. In this class, you'll learn how Linux has
been designed internally with portability in mind, how developers get
the kernel up and running on a new system and gain some insight into
the kernel development process. 

Please refer to the main BLU site ( for more
details, directions and parking. (Note that the building has a parking
lot in front of it on Amherst St. and is wheelchair accessable).
