Linux Newsgroups |
Linux Newsgroup Archives |
A number of newsgroups exist for discussion of various Linux related topics - from installing and configuring a Linux system, to writing applications for Linux, to discussing how Linux can be improved, to major announcements.
- For the discussion of the benefits of Linux compared to other operating systems.
- For the posting of announcements of general interest to the Linux community.
- For the posting Linux FAQs, How-To's, READMEs and other documents that answer questions about Linux. This will help keep the traffic down in other c.o.l.* groups.
- For questions and discussion regarding the writing of applications for Linux and the porting of applications to Linux.
- For questions and discussion regarding the development of the Linux operating system proper: kernel, device drivers, loadable modules.
- For questions and discussion specific to a particular piece of hardware, e.g., "can this system run Linux?", "how do I use this disk drive with Linux?", etc.
- For questions and discussion relating to Linux but not covered by a more specific Linux newsgroup.
- For questions and discussion relating to networking or communications including Ethernet boards, serial communications, SLIP, etc.
- For questions and discussion relating to Linux installation and system administration.
- For questions and discussion relating to X Window System, version 11, compatible software including servers, clients, libraries, and fonts, running under Linux. XFree86 issues not unique to Linux will be directed to comp.windows.x.i386unix.
- linux.* news hierarchy
- The linux.* news hierarchy is a set of gated mailing lists relevant to the Linux user community. They are typically very narrow in topic, and some, especially in the linux.dev.* and linux.act.* subhierarchies, are intended primarily for developers and alpha/beta-testers. Please read the intro on this newsgroup before posting to it.
Archives of the newsgroup comp.os.linux.announce are available by *ftp.
