CS 321 Lecture,
Dr. Lawlor, 2006/03/06
We've covered lots of material so far: all of Silberschatz Chapters 1-7, most of Chapters 8 and 9, and parts of Chapter 10.
Things to review in the book and lecture notes:
- Boot sequence (boot blocks, etc)
- Interrupts (including system calls) and signals
- Processes, context switching
- Threads, locks, and race conditions
- Page table, virtual memory access, etc.
- Memory allocation
- I/O interfaces
