Embedded Linux Primer Second Edition

Well it's finally done. The second edition of Embedded Linux Primer was completed last month, and should be on store shelves by mid-November 2010. It's already listed on Amazon.com.

Thanks to all those who supported the 1st edition.

Calling All Radio Amateurs

I recently revived a life-long hobby. I was first licensed as a Ham Radio operator in December of 1972, a few weeks after my 13th birthday. Then, as now, I loved to tinker with electronics and build stuff from scratch. I earned my Amateur Extra license at age 16, and still use that call today: K1AY. I was licensed as DA1WD during the three years that I lived near Munich, Germany as a United States Army technical specialist.

Embedded Linux Training

This is a placeholder for information related to Embedded Linux training.

I am considering developing a series of training "webinars" having general interest to embedded Linux developers. My current thinking is to start with short howto series, with examples of flash layout, MTD configuration, multi-media application usage, performance tuning, debugging, fast boot, and many other topics. These would be presentation-style, with audio and slide-ware, each maybe 45 minutes in length, covering single topics of interest.

Using netstat to view open ports

I've never been an expert at netstat, and it has many options (kinda like ps ;)

I recently read a reply to a query on stackoverflow (thanks to dExIT) , and I thought it was worthy of repeating here.

sudo netstat -tlpn

-l will list listening ports, -p will also display the process, -n will show port numbers instead of names. Add -t to only show TCP ports.

Good stuff.

Interesting Lightweight Display Manager

I've been meaning to learn more about the technologies and packages available for general embedded gui development. This is just a note to myself to remember to check out LXDM:



Profiling I/O

Great article/summary of tools and methods for discovering i/o bottlenecks. Now I just need to find time to learn and experiment with some of them.
