Overview of a Linux System


This chapter gives an overivew of a Linux system. First, the major services provided by the operating system are described. Then, the programs that implement these services are described with a considerable lack of detail. The purpose of this chapter is to give an understanding of the system as a whole, so each part is described in detail elsewhere.
