      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Paper quality not great

    Good content but bad quality

    Received the product well packed and in time. Following are the Pro and cons I see with this book.

    - Worst Binding. I have read 2 chapters of the book and almost all papers have come out.
    - Quality of the paper used is not of good quality. Some pages are so thin that you can read the letters from back of the page and is very difficult to read such pages.
    - Price of the book is at little higher side compared to other sites.

    -Content of the book is very good. Covers all the topic...

    Must read for "Understanding Linux Network Internals"

    I read this book essentially to understand Linux Device Drivers.

    The section on network device drivers offers a great deal of information on device registration, queueing discipline bits, notifiers, power management, ethtool, dealing with the PCI bus, module initialization, and more.

    It's a good supplement to the "Linux Device Drivers" book.
