Lfl Query

Hylton Conacher (ZR1HPC)
Hi,

I have decided to learn more about openSUSE including compiling from
source, which files to edit to change certain settings and
configurations etc.

Would the Lfl be the right place to start?

I have downloaded the lessons4lizards-fop.pdf file and wonder if this is
the right file and if there is a mailing list that could inform me of
updates or a new file that has been uploaded?

Is there a file for Lfl, like a free on-line book, about how openSUSE works

Regards
Hylton

Well, it depends. If you want to learn how to compile a book from XML
source, then yes you are right here. However, if you want to learn
more about source codes in general, how to compile the Linux kernel,
KDE programs, etc. then other sources are better.

The mentioned file is an "extension" of our official books that cover
more exotic topics. If someone writes an article about how to compile
or debug programs we can include it. However, LfL does not cover
developer issues, it is more targeted for the system administrator or
user.

About the updates: At the moment there is no special mailinglist or
procedure that informs users about updates of this PDF. Of course, we
can write on opensuse-doc to announce updates. Or maybe we can add an
Atom or RSS feed. That could reach users that are not subscribed to
this list. I am not sure. Help is appreciated as 10.3 is lurking and
demanding attention. :)

I don't know of any. Probably a single file won't be enough. ;) I am
sure, there are good articles on the Wiki about the build server and
how to compile programs. Of course, I would recommend also to look
into our documentation for 10.3 (mainly Reference and Start Up).
