Kernel and Driver development

Fri, 2017-04-28 22:54


This may be a bit different to your standard questions. I'm quite comfortable with linux as a desktop OS and happy to jump into the command line to carry out some tasks.

However, I've never done any development work for it. At my company, we will start to have some Linux work for our embedded processors. Before that work comes along, I'd like to start getting an appreciation for it and getting myself a good grounding in it.

Is Linux from Scratch a good resource to learn how the kernel, file system and driver development should go? Or is it more about spinning your own distro?

If it's not a good resource, does anyone have something I could learn with?

User Jailing

Fri, 2017-04-28 17:35

I want to jail users to only their home directory. But whats the best way to do it it.

I have multiple users and also multiple groups.

I know the MatchGroup with SSH. But programs like ServerPilot dont use this methode of chroot.

Firefox has a debug mode on waylaid but it is unusable. Chrome and Chromium use xwayland.

When you have an issue in linux and have to fix a million other problems with dependencies to eventually fix your original problem? Thanks!

centos 5.11, ports 80 and 443 are being blocked and I don't know how to undo that

Fri, 2017-04-28 13:54


Here is the info for kernel and linux version

~]$ uname -r 2.6.18-400.1.1.el5 ~]$ more /etc/*-release CentOS release 5.11 (Final)

When I run nmap I find this info 22/tcp open ssh 80/tcp closed http 113/tcp closed ident 443/tcp closed https 1311/tcp open rxmon

So I can ssh, however I can't access the web interface for the server anymore. I'm not that familiar with linux. I want to be able to access 80 and 443 again. Any help would be appreciated.
