LDP - Intro to the Linux Documentation Project, with help, guides and documents
The Linux Documentation Project (LDP) provides a variety of free documentation resources
including guides, FAQs, HOWTOs, and man-pages to the Linux community.
The various documents in the LDP archives are maintained by individual authors, and are
listed in the beginning of each HOWTO. If you have any questions or inputs to a document
we encourage you to contact the authors directly.
The LDP has its own dedicated web site as do many of the various translations projects
which are linked from the main LDP web site at
which you may wish to bookmark.
A web page with status information for manual pages and translations is found at
LDP has a number of mailing lists, mostly of use to authors:
Announcements from the LDP project
General discussion on the LDP project
To join these lists send a mail with a body of "subscribe" to
