Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS source code





riyadh
can anyone tell me where i can download the source code Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS PC version? I really need it! And also advice me on the best programming software to edit the source code. I want to buy the latest version of Microsoft's Visual C++. Will it be enough to edit the Ubuntu source code?

Please do some research first. There are a few problems with what you are saying.

1. Ubuntu is not just a single program, it is hundreds and hundreds of smaller programs that work together. Because of this fact, I would believe you are talking about the operating system kernel, but I could easily be very wrong.

2. The people that work on a Linux operating system, such as Ubuntu is, would never use Microsoft Windows programming tools to program because they wouldn't work and they already have their own, called the GNU Compiler Collection. Of course with those you also need a text editor to write the code in.

3. You should probably begin editing with something simpler and small, before you try to comprehend the workings of an entire operating system and the programs that run on it.

Please read up on it:

Why? Do you realy know what is source code? Do you also know what is Linux?
Try to learn what is Linux, how to use it and how does it work.
Than you will be so smart to know what you want now.

Yeah, Microsoft's Visual C++ will allow you to edit a linux disrto.... Rolling Eyes

The best C++ editor I could recommend would be Anjuta IDE, which runs on Linux (and runs best on Gnome).
It is similar to Microsoft's C++ editor in many ways, but is open-source and Linux compatible.

I have found a way for you!
If you are a Suicide Society member you can look at
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/
and build your own linux (better then Ubuntu Twisted Evil )
OR
If you are only killer, you can look at
http://www.gentoo.org/
it is the best distro where you must have all sources because everything you want you must compile from surces. There are no binary packages (except openoffice-bin, firefox-bin, and some proprietary drivers)

And the editor?
the best is VIM (before you start it, learn how to quit it correctly Razz without resetting the computer)

actually would agree with JayBee about LinuxFromScratch, dont have enough experience yet to start working with it myself but found a great reading list to get newbies started:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/prologue/prerequisites.html

The essential reading list is great list of docs and HOWTO's to read.

If you really want to dig into the kernel of Ubuntu, I will start by saying that it is based on the Debian kernel and the source can be found at http://packages.debian.org/oldstable/devel/kernel-source-2.4.27 Its an old stable but there are links to the ones you may be interested in. The Ubuntu kernel team has a git website at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git for you to look at everything from the Xen implemented kernel source to the new Gutsy. I would recommend 1000 hours of reading to see the difference between the deb version and the Ubuntu version, or simply use a line comparison program to see where debian, and then Ubuntu made changes to the kernel source. The original kernel from linus can be found on kernel.org. All of the tools you need for editing and compiling your kernel will come in any standard Linux distro. When you have all of these things ready to go, please refer to kernel.org . Don´t let it get you down if you run into trouble. You´ll learn more. Backup, Backup, Backup. No problem.

And just for styles sake http://pantransit.reptiles.org/prog/CodingStyle.html

I know this is an old thread. I posted anyway in that it might be found by others, old threads never die, they just get re googled. If the original posted is still a Frihoster, and has email notification set, interest might be reignited.

Just for the record, you could very easily use Visual Studio to edit the source of anything, including Ubuntu. You'd just need to use a different compiler.
