The Anatomy of A Linux Distribution

Check Reference

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in a Linux distribution while you wait for your fancy GUI to boot up? The main aim of the talk will be to demystify all the underlying components that make up a Linux distribution, and how they interact with each other to make it all tick. Target audience includes DevOps engineers, SysAdmins, and all developers in-general.

Tentative structure:

  1. Brief overview of the end-to-end boot process of a Linux Distribution
  2. Explain various components involved in the main boot process such as Initramfs, Init Systems, Udev, etc.
  3. Interactions between various user-space components like Mesa, DBus, Pipewire, etc.
  4. What the simplest possible Linux system looks like (concepts behind all these abstractions)
