OK i'm new to Linux and these questions may seem dumb....
I've just run my first C program using gcc on Linux Mandrake 7.2. and i'm
running an AMD Athlon cpu.
a) what architecture is linux using? (recommended reading ??)
b) How does gcc/linux etc compile a program when its running under an Intel
architecture i.e does it use some kind of cross-compilation/ look-up tables
c) If the above is true why can't i use inline Tasm/Masm coding. Conversley
how does nasm et al manipulate my intel-type cpu to produce "Linux" code?
d) How do I write to my SoundBlaster PCI 128 card under Linux?
e) How do I write to my Riva TNT video card under Linux?
