This whitepaper is the third in a series from TimeSys's “2.6 Linux Resource Center” on using the new Linux 2.6 kernel. Authored by TimeSys Senior Product Manager William von Hagen, the whitepapers in this series place special emphasis on the primary issues in migrating existing drivers, applications, and embedded Linux deployments to a Linux distribution based on the 2.6 kernel.
This white paper series provides an overview of the process of moving an existing desktop system to the 2.6 kernel. This white paper will highlight other software requirements imposed by the new kernel and administrative changes that you must make when migrating an existing system to the 2.6 kernel.
Material presented is largely vendor-neutral.
Read part two of von Hagen's series . . .
A Webinar corresponding to this whitepaper will be held Thursday, February 26 @ 2:00 PM EST.
