Download Linux Kernel Crash Book by Igor Ljubuncic PDF for Free.
Linux kernel crash analysis is not an everyday topic. It is very likely a niche topic, which will interest only system administrators and professionals dabbling in the kernel. This condition may stop you from reading the book, as you may not be either the person maintaining server boxes nor the code developer trying to debug his drivers.
However, you may also consider this book as a very extensive learning lesson in what goes behind the curtains of a typical Linux system. While you may not find immediate use to the contents presented in this book, the general knowledge and problem solving methods and tools you find here should serve you universally. Come the day, come the opportunity, you will find this book of value.

I have written the book in a simple, linear, step-by-step manner, trying to make it accessible even to less knowledgeable people. I am fully aware of the paradox in mixing words inexperienced users with kernel crash analysis, but it does not have to be so. Reading this book will provide you with the confidence and understanding of what makes your Linux box tick. However, it cannot replace hands-on experience and intuition gained from actual work with Linux systems.
