|Linux Appliance Design: A Hands-On Guide to Building Linux Appliances
Lowest new price: $91.62
Lowest used price: $36.85
List price: $59.95
Author: Bob Smith
Modern appliances are complex machines with processors, operating systems, and application software. While there are books that will tell you how to run Linux on embedded hardware, and books on how to build a Linux application, Linux Appliance Design is the first book to demonstrate how to merge the two and create a Linux appliance. You'll see for yourself why Linux is the embedded operating system of choice for low-cost development and a fast time to market.
Linux Appliance Design shows how to build better appliances-appliances with more types of interfaces, more dynamic interfaces, and better debugged interfaces. You'll learn how to build backend daemons, handle asynchronous events, and connect various user interfaces (including web, framebuffers, infrared control, SNMP, and front panels) to these processes for remote configuration and control. Linux Appliance Design also introduces the Run-Time Access library, which provides a uniform mechanism for user interfaces to communicate with daemons.
Separate your user interfaces from your daemons Give user interfaces run time access to configuration, status, and statistics Add professional network management capabilities to your application Use SNMP and build a MIB Build a web-based appliance interface Build a command line interface (CLI) Build a framebuffer interface with an infrared control as input Manage logs and alarms on an appliance
Companion CD includes a prototype appliance-a home alarm system-that supports the book's lessons.
|Learning Debian Gnu/Linux

Author: Bill McCarty
Linux and Open Source are attracting unprecedented attention in the high tech world. Debian GNU/Linux is a remarkable demonstration of what the Open Source model can produce: Debian is an all volunteer organization, and their distribution contains only open-source software.
This exciting new world can be intimidating for those whose primary computing experience is Microsoft Windows. In Learning Debian/GNU Linux, Bill McCarty has written a book for this new audience, aimed at introducing them to a Unix style operating system.
Learning Debian GNU/Linux will guide any new user of Linux through the installing and use of Debian GNU/Linux, the entirely Open Source version of the Linux operating system. It demystifies Linux in terms familiar to Windows users and gives readers only what they need to start being successful users of Linux.
Learning Debian GNU/Linux takes the reader step by step through the process of installing and setting up a Debian system, and provides a thorough but gentle introduction to the basics of using Debian GNU/Linux.
Because the book is written specifically for the included CD, the reader needs nothing else to get started with this exciting new operating system.
Learning Debian GNU/Linux assumes only that its readers have a bit of Windows or Macintosh experience, are willing to learn, and aren't afraid to do a little experimenting. From there, it provides a complete introductory-level explanation of installing and using Linux and the GHU suite of tools, focusing on the Debian 2.1 distribution to the extent that it differs from other flavors of Linux. Because it ships with a bootable CD-ROM that contains Debian 2.1, this book represents a complete Linux starter kit (and a reasonably priced one, at that).
The author takes a patient approach to his subject, explaining key configuration files one line at a time and walking through important procedures, such as setting up a dial-up connection to the Internet. He's also remarkably liberal with troubleshooting ideas, frequently pausing to present lists of what might have gone wrong as a result of a recently explained procedures and suggesting solutions to each. He's also careful to explain aspects of the Unix universe (such as mounting devices and running a windowing system atop a kernel) that might be unfamiliar to people accustomed to more mainstream operating systems. Like any good Linux user, McCarty is quick to share his favorite utilities and explain how to use them. --David Wall
Topics covered: Installing Debian Linux and the GNU suite, installing and using the X windowing system, performing critical administration and management tasks (in graphical programs and via the bash shell), setting up a local area network (LAN), setting up the Apache Web server, and using the Debian package-management utilities.

Author: Divya Sharma
In this book, research work is done in the field of embedded systems as the need for portable and embedded system has increased dramatically in every field.ARM system-on-chip is the best platform for reducing the risk and the cost of SoC designs and thus accelerating the speed, accuracy, flexibility.Thus porting of the Linux Kernel is done on ARM platform by using the proposed algorithm based on PORTING THE LINUX KERNEL ON ARM9 PLATFORM & UPDATING THE BOOTLOADER. Various complex architectures and applications can be implemented easily using ARM. After porting part has been completed RFID based security system is being implemented using ARM system on chip. RFID security system is one of the challenging and emerging technology and ARM development board which gives it an extra edge by overcoming various security issues.With the use of open source technology and choosing embedded Linux as the development platform, the development cost has reduced tremendously.
