Overview

Linux Appliance Design shows how to use librta to build a Linux appliance. Topics include appliance architecture, security, and how to build simple, yet responsive user interfaces. The book shows how to build five different user interfaces including a web interface, a command line interface, a front panel interface, an SNMP agent, and a framebuffer interface with an IR remote control. Readers are encouraged to use this appliance's source code when they build their own appliances.
