I want to design and implement a filesystem on Linux. I've read some
chapters of Linux Kernel Internals, Linux Device Drivers and Design of
Unix operating system. I have been working on C ( and have developed
good confidence on this language) but havent been working on any other
in one of the earlier posts (but now i would like to have some views)
i had been suggested the following books -
1. 'Understanding the LINUX Kernel'
2. Linux Kernel Programming
Also the Linux Kernel Sources..
Lets say i have to go about building my skills for the filesystem,
which of them would be really relevent to go through. Dont suggest me
all of them.. but some , to be really specific to.
Would like to do it in a project manner.. Few points that i have -
1. (learning phase ) - which books?? Also, is Assembly programming
required for implementing a file system.
2. (keeping this in an analysis phase) - Where can i find a site where
i can see the various features being implemented in different
filesystems. A common place.. Here I would like to understand various
features that i can have and would incorporate.
This is one way.. where i plan to do it on my own..
Suggestions would be highly appreciated..
