Next: Introduction Up: MMDOC. Linux Memory Management Previous: MMDOC. Linux Memory Management


This document aims at documenting the Linux V2.4.18 Memory Management subsystem for the i386 architecture. This i plan to do by giving a brief description of the algorithms used for memory management, and explanation to bits and pieces of code from the linux kernel where ever needed. It does not talk about highmem yet. This document does not aim to be a code comentry, but tries to explain the logic and algorithm that goes behind the code. As such this document tries to minimize the learning curve (that i had) while trying to understand the linux kernel
