Looking for Architectural Overview graphic of Suse

Hello Suse Experts,
I’m new to Suse,(finally kicked windows out) and i would like to learn this operating system “from the inside out”

Question

  1. Do you know (online) resources / (e)books for me where i can learn the inner works of Suse in specific (and Linux in general) resources that show the Architecture of this platform

I’m looking for PICTURES (which are still worth a ton of text-lines to me) to see how everything works under the hood? like…

  • How does Suse Boot
  • How is the kernel organized
  • How is the system software (services, drivers) loaded
  • How is the file system contructed

Thanks for your time and valuable answers

Best Regards, Ronald

For a general knowledge read, check out the RUTE guide.

Maybe you will not find all the pictures you need (most hackers visualize what
you wish to see, and instead of drawing pictures they use words to describe
them) so, maybe you are forced to read their words and draw the pix in your
head. If that turns out to be the case then maybe it would be good to look the
output of a root command line entry of:

chkconfig -l --deps

which lists all the services started during boot, along with the named services
which must be started before [see man chkconfig]…with that output and manual
pages and/or google (to learn what the services do) you should be able to draw a
quite complete and detailed PICTURE of what is going on under the hood.

Let us know how you make out.
