    This book is for non-beginner. It does not contains enough background knownledge to those new to kernel. Just wonder if any book can fill the gape.

  2. Dmitry Vostokov Says:

    Absolutely agree. It is hard to read even for user space developers if they are new to kernel. So for them some kernel programming introduction that has some code is necessary. I put some list here:

    For technical support some lighter version is definitely needed too. I have some thoughts about it but wait until 5th edition is released.

    But the wait is going to be looooong. November 2008 is tentative release date :(
