| What is elf kernel ?
ELF is a binary file format. Stands for Executable and Linking format.
The kernel must support this format so that files made in this format
can be loaded, read and executed by the kernel.
Now the kernel itself is a big binary file. Under FreeBSD, the kernel
itself is a dynamically linked ELF binary. Goto "/" and issue "file
kernel" and see the results.
Ofcourse, there are unconfirmed rumours that Linus Torvarlds was just
the front man for Santa Claus and the Tooth fairy, who actually wrote
the Linux kernel alongwith elves and hence the name Elf Kernel ;)
