The basic question is what is a Linux kernel?
Now the kernel is an important part of the Linux operating system. The kernel manages the resources of Linux such as:
- File management
- Memory management
- I/O management
- Process management
- Device management
- Networking support including IPv4 and IPv6
- Advanced features such as virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, shared copy-on-write executables etc
The job of the kernel is to decide who will use these resources and for how long and when. It runs your programs or sets up to execute binary files.
The kernel acts as an intermediary between the computer hardware and various applications or computer software.
