Upcoming Linux and Related Events:

Important: There are many LDP mirrors around the world, please use one near you.

WWW Site Admins: You can now mirror the LDP WWW pages via FTP. Configure your FTP mirroring software to download the tree sunsite.unc.edu:LDP, login linuxdoc, password linuxdoc. I recommend the mirror package.

Suggestions welcome! Email gregh@sunsite.unc.edu with comments and ideas, or use the feedback form.

Linux Documentation Project

Here is the Linux Documentation Project Manifesto and Copyright License for LDP works.

  • LDP Guides:
    • Installation and Getting Started Guide, version 2.2.2 by Matt Welsh,
      is available in HTML, plain text, DVI and PostScript.

    • The Linux Kernel Hackers' Guide, version 0.7 by Michael K. Johnson
      is available in HTML only.

      This manual is a guide to the Linux kernel, ranging from concepts to development. If you're interested in writing a device driver, or just general kernel hacking, this is the book for you.

    • The Linux Network Administrators' Guide, version 1.0 by Olaf Kirch,
      is available in HTML, plain text, DVI, and PostScript.

      This guide supplements the System Administrators' Guide and cover all of the diverse issues of networking under Linux, from UUCP to serial connections to TCP/IP. Many Linux users won't have access to such a network, so this information is in a separate manual. It contains an intro to TCP/IP and UUCP (for those who have never used such networks before, lots of background information), TCP/IP, UUCP, SLIP, and DNS configuration, configuration of mail systems such as sendmail and Smail, setting up NNTP and news, and NFS.

    • The Linux Programmer's Guide, version 0.4 by B. Scott Burkett, Sven Goldt, John D. Harper, Sven van der Meer and Matt Welsh, is available in HTML via HTTP or via FTP and in PostScript. Also visit the Linux Programmer's Guide Homepage.

    • The Linux System Administrators' Guide, version 0.4 by Lars Wirzenius,
      is available in DVI and PostScript. Also visit the System Administrators' Guide Homepage.

      This is the third book in the main LDP series, and assumes knowledge of everything in the Installation and Users' Guides. It will cover all of the aspects of keeping the system running, handling user accounts, backups, configuration of the system, installing and upgrading software, and more. Whereas some of this information is in the Installation Guide (just to get the system off the ground) this book should be much more complete.

    • The Linux Users' Guide, version beta-1 by Larry Greenfield,
      is available in DVI and PostScript.

      This book covers all of the user-end aspects of Linux, from sitting down at the first login session to using complex tools such as gcc, emacs, and so on. It assumes no previous Unix experience, so not only will it serve as an introduction to Linux, but to Unix in general as well. This manual won't cover system administrator tasks (i.e. anything that needs to be done as root) - it's for the J. Random User who has a working Linux system sitting in front of them.

    You can purchase printed books from vendors such as Red Hat Software, and Yggdrasil Computing which are listed under Commercial Products.

  • Linux HOWTOs:
    Also available are the Linux HOWTO and mini-HOWTO documents , which are detailed documents on specific subjects.

    You can also get the HOWTOs in: plain text, PostScript, DVI, and HTML (tared and gziped). The mini-HOWTOs are only available in plain text.

    The entire HOWTO collection is available (tared and gziped), along with the mini-HOWTO collection (tared and gziped) in plain text format.

  • Linux man Pages:
    The latest Linux man Pages for sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9 are available here (with some translations), or check out Andries E. Brouwer's page for the latest information. Section 1 and 8 man pages (i.e., user commands) are available with the corresponding software packages.

    You can search the man pages (fully cross-referenced!), too.

  • Linux FAQs:
    Various FAQs on Linux topics can also be found, including the Linux FAQ.

  • Linux Gazette: UPDATED! [2/3/97] -- The Linux Gazette issue 14, an online magazine providing many Linux tips and tricks. You can also get the latest issue and back issues of the Linux Gazette via FTP.
You can search the LDP books and HOWTOs with the Harvest system.
