Re: Where are you asking help?!

linux for the most part is linux and just because you use one distro does not mean you can not use other forums wiki's. google/"any search engine" is great for finding queries no matter the distro as long as you know how your system is set you can implemint most. I have yet to find a better wiki than arch's.


obstacles are only in your mind. how you deal with them is what "matters".

Help for what exactly?

As far as Linux goes, I use the Arch Linux forums, #! forums, and as a last resort I would try Neowin.net (they do have a Linux section tongue)

Re: Where are you asking help?!

It's almost always a case-by-case basis. Don't really have a specific channel or website I go to.
Usually seek help in this order;

1. Man pages
2. Web searches (DDG, Google, whatever)
3. Distro/OS related wiki pages, forums or mailing lists*
4. Whatever place the documentation points to if all else fails (usually an IRC channel or private mailing list of some sort)
5. Reinstall and try again**
6. Voodoo dolls
7. Large metal bat

* Sometimes I tend to use the Arch or Gentoo wikis for other Linux distros as well.
** Not always an option, for obvious reasons.

Re: Where are you asking help?!

@gutterslob I didn't know DDG, seems really cool!

I'd like to understand if except the distro forum/wiki there is some main website where you can ask for general help.
I mean, cyberciti.biz is one of the most common website I find while looking in Google; I also find linuxquestions.org, but hardly ever it answer to my questions.

The point is, I really like Linux, I love almost everything of it.. But when I have some technical question or issue abt networking or bash or setting up a server and so on, it would be really comfortable have only one place to write or to search.

It's like IRC channes.. Many distro/software has the channel on Freenode, so one server many communities.  big_smile  big_smile

Re: Where are you asking help?!

@donpi's sig: I do indeed! A basic one I make in every distribution that I go to.

Sorry for the OT!

EDIT: Seems like you already have it there! Its the last one!

EDIT 2: Might I recommend you to the Tips, Tricks and Scripts section of this forum if you are not already familiar with it?
