Understanding the kernel

I have been trying to learn the kernel source code. I studied a little bit C/Assembly just for getting into learning the linux kernel. Downloaded the kernel source code, read the How-to's, docs etc.

I am not getting anywhere, there is nothing that I seem to understand. I guess I am getting frustrated with learning the whole thing. Is there or can anybody please help me understand what exactly I am doing wrong or what I should do to learn the kernel.

I definitely don't want to be left out of the community...

Thanks.

  • Look at lwn.net.
    Also Linux Device Drivers by Rubini
    There are some more books on the lwn.net site worth looking into.
