Presentation Topic

What does this button do? The Linux boot process.

Presentation request / proposal

This presentation covers the boot process. What happens after you press the power button to start your computer? We'll look very briefly at POST and BIOS, then concentrate on what happens once Linux is in control.

  • POST
  • BIOS
  • MBR
  • LILO / Grub
  • kernel
  • initrd
  • runlevels
  • login managers
    if we are lucky we'll hear about some new stuff in development for faster booting
  • Coreboot
  • initng
  • upstart
