The Linux Documentation Project Wiki

The Linux Documentation Project - LDP for short, or tldp (taken from the domain name) - is a very long-standing project whose aim is to document all aspects of the GNU/Linux operating system and associated applications software. The Project is governed by the LDP Manifesto and has a long history.

The LDP website consists of two parts: the first part is a collection of documents, mostly the famous "HOWTO"s, but also some Guides. This collection is available in many flavours, from html for online reading to docbook source for rendering in many other document formats. This part of the site is mirrored all over the world.

The second part is the wiki you are currently reading. This part aims to be the LDP workshop, where new documents are written, and where old ones are updated. Of course, anyone wishing to write in docbook/linuxdoc is allowed to do so; but others can use the power and friendliness of this wiki to produce their texts. Be warned, however, that docs on the wiki may still be under elaboration and so not yet fully accurate.
