  • What Is PID 0?

    I don't like that, it's not good practice.

    One should give links to original sources, i.e. https://kernel.org as far as Linux is concerned.

    Even if git guarantees that the content is the same (if someone bothers to verify that the SHA-1 is the same and we exclude the possibility of a SHA-1 collision in git, which is yet to be demonstrated).

    kernel.org existed before github.

  • Thinking about building a operating system
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 Jun 2024
    - Modern Operating Systems, 5th Edition by Andrew Tanenbaum (of MINIX fame) and Herbert Bos (https://www.pearson.com/en-us/subject-catalog/p/modern-opera...) is the latest edition of a solid graduate-level textbook on operating system concepts.

    It may also be beneficial studying the source code of existing operating systems. I recommend starting with smaller, simpler systems, such as MINIX and xv6 (https://github.com/mit-pdos/xv6-public), before moving on to larger, more complex systems such as the Linux kernel (https://kernel.org/) and its userland (e.g., GNU utilities, systemd, etc.).

    Another cool thing is to study the designs of non-Unix operating systems, such as the classic Mac OS, VMS, IBM OS/400, Plan 9 (yes, this is "more Unix than Unix" in many ways, but it's quite a departure from Unix) and its successor Inferno, and Symbolics Genera. Bonus points for reading academic papers on OS concepts such as exokernels.

    Good luck! It's a long but very interesting journey!

    Those other flashy distros like mint and ubuntus are designed with rich people with very fresh machines in mind, they don't care if you have an AMDx4 or core2duo or even 32bit older machine. Even Mint and ubuntu people will tell you, if you have an old machine with little ram, use antiX. It still works very well with machines not even released yet, buy one in May 2024 and I "guaranty you" antiX will run fine. That's because kernels, even 6.1 have code for machines not yet released in the market, this is where manufacturers of new hardware send their prototypes to be tested, to kernel.org Some are even industrial machines we will never see in the market.
  • Is there a way to naively replicate a VarHandle.getOpque with fences?
    1 project | /r/javahelp | 12 Oct 2023
    The memory_order_relaxed explanation on the kernel.org documentation heavily implies (never explicitly) that the direct memory load is implicit in the barrier(so by preventing it's reordering we are also forcing a LOAD from main), and that THIS specific barrier (relaxed) is what we NEED for these type of scenarios, so I am not entirely sure if a loadLoadFence() would prevent the hoisting... maybe it will prevent the reordering but not the hoisting/caching... in which case we would still have a visibility issue.
  • Have some confusion around the Ubuntu Kernel
    1 project | /r/linux4noobs | 8 Oct 2023
    Are all versions of the kernel from kernel.org called mainline kernels or only 6.6-rc4 as shown in the picture?

    I built the dev env on Devuan GNU+Linux, a fork of Debian without systemd. It resembles my past trial on Artix Linux.
