General and introductory Linux information.


Linux Documentation Project

The Linux Documentation Project (LDP) is working on developing good, reliable documentation for the Linux operating system. The overall goal of the LDP is to collaborate in taking care of all of the issues of Linux documentation, ranging from online documentation (man pages, HTML, and so on) to printed manuals covering topics such as installing, using, and running Linux. Here is the Linux Documentation Project Manifesto and Copyright License for LDP works.

For translations of LDP works and documentation in languages other English, have a look at the !english links.

You can search the LDP Guides and HOWTOs with the Excite Search Engine, and search the the man pages (fully cross-referenced!) too.
