the kernel starting point.
October 05, 2010 05:51AM
OK, I have been a lifelong windows programmer and user. I started using the Linux OS as my primary desktop OS a few months ago.

I decided it would be a good time to focu on programming more for linux than windows.
I have downloaded the source code of the Linux kernel. and to avoid me waisting time figuring this out on my own I would like someone to answer me this question.

what is the starting point of the kernel, which file(usually a main.c file)contains the very first line of code executed when the boot-loader starts Linux.

Thanks in advance for any reply.

If you are going to browse the Linux source code, LXR ( [lxr.linux.no] ) will save you hours/days/weeks of time through its searching and cross-referencing features.

Additional source: Concrete Architecture of the Linux Kernel - [plg.uwaterloo.ca]

Good Luck :-)
