No post on Sundays.
There are vast numbers of mailing lists and forums out there where
you can search for answers or ask questions yourself (but you will
get tired of registering on each one in order to be allowed to ask
questions :-). There are also lots of useful web sites for digging up
linux information. This list just scratches the surface.
Fedora Users list A mailing list for Fedora
users which I find quite handy to observe what is happening in my
release of choice.
Search Fedora Users list with google.
Forum Some folks prefer web forums to mailing lists.
Other than the format, this is very similar in content to the
users mailing list.
Search Fedora Forum with google.
Project Home This is the home page and wiki for the
Fedora Linux release.
Search Fedora Wiki with google.
Bugzilla Both Red Hat and Fedora share the same bug
It is usually a good idea to search the bugs when trying to
solve a problem since someone else may already have reported it
and even have a way to work around it.
Linux news web site.
At some point, you will ask a totally harmless question like:
“How does this new thing work?”, and packs of
infuriated geeks will spring out of the woodwork making snide
comments like: “Well, if you had followed the development,
you would know!”. (As if you have absolutely nothing better
to do than spend every waking moment searching for linux projects
that may some day affect your life and then breathlessly follow
every step of their development.)
The LWN.net site is about your only hope for finding
and following such developments should you care to spend the
time. (Or maybe just catching up on them once they have suddenly
appeared in your linux distro and knocked you for a loop.)
Search LWN.net with google.
DistroWatch.com Pointers to gazillions of
other linux distros (Fedora is not the only one, even if I don't
mention others very often on this web site :-).
Often particularly nasty problems (especially with hardware)
manifest differently on different versions of linux. You can
sometimes discover useful information by downloading Live CDs of
other distros and giving them a whirl.
Forums Speaking of other distros, the Ubuntu forums often
have useful information that is applicable to more than Ubuntu.
Search Ubuntu Forums with google.
Mailing List A mailing list with enormous daily volume,
no moderation, and filled with spam and obscure linux kernel
However, if you are having problems with drivers or obscure
new kernel features or bugs, it is the place to search.
