Καλωσήρθατε στο Kernel Portal edit

The Linux Kernel is the central component of a Linux operating system like openSUSE. A Kernel manages hardware resources like CPU, memory and hard disks and provides abstractions that provide applications with a consistent view of these resources. Also, the Kernel provides drivers for devices attached to various system buses like USB, PCI, SATA and IDE. For a complete overview of Operating System Kernels see the Wikipedia article

Topics edit



Linux Mainline

On a regular basis a "kernel.org Kernel" (or mainline) is released with a name like "Linux 2.6.32". These Kernels are developed by a community of developers and maintained by Linus Torvalds. For more information about this take a look at http://kernel.org .

openSUSE Kernel

At the beginning of a openSUSE development cycle the Kernel team takes a released "kernel.org Kernel" and adds a number of patches to increase stability and introduce new features. These patches are kept to a minimum and most all will eventually make it into the kernel.org Kernel. This Kernel is maintained in the Kernel git repository.
