Re: [edlug] Docs howto's and tutorials




Why not mine the list archives for answers ? I'm sure that a lot of systems/programs have been discussed here; if you can get permission from listees this may be the best way. "The distilled wisdom of EdLUG" or something like that.

If i could get a hold of that sort of thing that would be great but would not know where to start. Web accessible stuff would be fine though. What i want is accurate stuff though not some of the junk out there that seems like some guy has just guessed. Just want to get a lot of it together in one place . Have already got all the LDP stuff on there. But a lot of that is getting very outdated.

Doesnt realy matter if they interest me what i want is to try and get a
good collection of docs that actualy work. For example trying to get a
USB adsl modem to work with mandrake I found about ten tutorials that
didnt work before findin one that did. Lookin for that sort of thing.
Tutorials to get that awkward piece of hardware to work or a doc that
gives you the commands you need for a program without tellin you the
history of it first.


That is an ambitious idea. Am I right in thinking that you want "third
party" documentation, rather than web accessible stuff from the suppliers
of the hard/software in question?
