The Boot Process
Posted on 2008-08-24, last modified 2011-05-23.

This is a recording of the second Kernel Walkthrough given by Bart Trojanowski for the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group. This time Bart covers the x86 boot process in Linux. He gives a presentation with Q+A in the first hour. In the second hour he walks thorough the Linux C and assembly code itself.

We were generously hosted again by TheCodeFactory, a local hotbed of high-tech startup companies.

Special thanks again to Richard Guy Briggs for help with this recording.
