The more articles on embedded linux, the better. I often have difficulty with some of the books on this topic, as I'm not a computer engineer, but a programmer. I've always wanted to dabble in embedded systems but find it difficult to know where to begin (I know there is linuxdevices.com, but their into-guide to embedded systems is a bit outdated, no?).

Looking forward to the next part.

p.s. Has anyone tried using Emac, Inc. Embedded Linux Starter Kit? http://www.emacinc.com/trainers/linux_starter_kit.htm

Error in URL that u provided

Take a look at

www.sveasoft.com

---> take hardware readily available for 50-60 $ (the linksys wrt54g or the linksys wrt54gs wireless router), load the firmware
from the guys at sveasoft, and you have a real linux router with kernel 2.4, iptables, ebtables and lots of wireless commands.
The absolutely cheapest solution in my opinion.

is nice to finally see an article (series) on embedded systems.
My first attempt at building an embedded sys was early in 1999
although im not an expert , i was able to build some nice systems
routers, video boxes, etc , out of ordinary computer hardware.
i think it would be appropiate here to mention that i couldn't have done many of this projects without the help of busybox.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Webinar
Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
