Hi Everyone

This is kind of a continuation of "Any Plans to Dump systemd"

I am really enjoying books on the Linux Kernel, device drivers and one
on Linux system calls and libc. Once things are up and running I get the
process layout and I have a great book on assembly.

However I am still weak on the init, what happens after the kernel takes

Do you have any books you could recommend?

Thanks for reading-Patrick

What exactly happens after the kernel launches the init daemon depends on... what that init daemon is. They all aim at launching the system services but do so differently. Nowadays, systemd is, by far, the most popular. https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/ lists quite a lot of resources. For example http://www.h-online.com/open/features/Control-Centre-The-systemd-Linux-init-system-1565543.html
