Review

The authors have done a good job fitting all the pieces together that are necessary for embedded Linux development. The book discusses topics such as board support packages, embedded storage and real-time Linux programming in depth. Embedded graphics and uClinux are also explained with clarity. The book is a good attempt to address the concerns of an embedded Linux developer… Although this book is specifically for running Linux on embedded systems it can also be used as a guide to port a system from traditional RTOS or homegrown operating system to embedded Linux… Seeing all the pieces separately and working together can help you make sense of the embedded Linux ecosystem.

I bought the book because the table of contents showed that the book covered the topics comprehensively. However, there is a serious lack of depth. I think the book is good for students who are just learning about linux and embedded systems, but not as useful for the more serious and experienced developer.

Nice explanation about the embedded world, kernel skeleton and differences, commercial use and much more.
The perfect combination is this book more "Embedded Linux Primer", that I has bought in the last month.

I take this opportunity to congratulate authors on the job WELL DONE. This book emphasizes on "programming" aspect of embedded Linux which is missing from earlier books like one from karim yaghmour. The topics such as MTD, real time, embedded graphics, uclinux are presented very clearly and in detailed manner. Overall, it's GOOD.

From the perspective of someone new to embedded linux but experienced in embedded systems, this book provides a clear and concise overview of embedded linux issues. I disagree with the other reviewer that mentioned that this book is a collection of lists. Most sections are well explained and bullet lists are only used where appropriate.

Not a good one. This is a collection of bulleted lists, I did not like it.
I bought it mainly for the uClinux chapter and the graphics one, but I did not find it useful.
