I was wondering if you knew a site where I can get alot of information on Linux's Memory Management. I am doing a report on it and need as much infomation I can get. Websites, books, etc.. any info will help. Thank you for your time.
How about the source code? That would be the most authoritative resource on the topic. Look through the sources in /usr/src/linux/mm for starters.
If you look at my "LDP by Topics" page and search on "programming" you'll find a list of all of LDP HOWTOs and guides that relate to Linux programming. In particular there the ones that refer to the "kernel." That might be a good introduction; help you get your bearings.
There is also the "The Linux Programmer's BouncePoint" at http://www.ee.mu.oz.au/linux/programming and the Linux Programming page at the #LinuxOS (IRC Channel) home page: http://www.linuxos.org/Lprogram.html Another site is Rik van Riel's Linux Memory Management page at: http://www.linux.eu.org/Linux-MM (though this is really pretty preliminary -- it has links to related topics. Rik apparently started this, then got side-tracked to write a performance tuning guide. (An understandable priority, considering things like the Mindcraft fiasco).
