Warning: strftime() [function.strftime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Asia/Calcutta' for 'IST/5.0/no DST' instead in /home/foss.in/fci/html/2008/register/include/smarty/libs/Smarty_Compiler.class.php on line 362

Linux Kernel Quality improvements
|Abstract||This session will be hand on Linux Kernel hacking. We will have some experienced kernel hackers helping attendees to work on the kerne.
There are two primary focusses for this workout:
- fixing bugs from the kernel.org bugzilla or other user reports
- helping to bring drivers up to a standard where they can be submitted for mainline inclusion.
Other aspects will be tolerated, time permitting, but we won't get into things like integration complex new subsystems.
|Pre-requisites||Knowledge of the C programming language. Interest in the Linux Kernel. Optional: - interesting bugs to be fixed - crazy hardware that doesn't work properly yet - a driver that needs some help|
|Speaker Profile||Christoph Hellwig has been working with Linux for more than 10 years, soon focussing on kernel-related issues. He has also been involved in various other Free Software projects. After a number of smaller network administration and programming contracts he worked for Caldera's German development subsidiary on various kernel and userlevel aspects of the OpenLinux distribution and later joined the filesystem and storage group at SGI and is focussing on XFS for Linux now. Since 2004 he has been self-employed doing contracting, consulting and training in the Linux Kernel and Storage world.|
