    A welcome message

    Welcome !





    Justlinux prides itself for having relatively little redundant and irrelevant information. This is achieved by members asking direct, short and precise questions.

    If the Justlinux tradition is maintained then the newbies are encouraged to follow this simple rule.

    Newbies are not expected to know how to ask the questions correctly and this is understandable.

    However giving it some thought before raising a question with pertinent information included can make your thread




    • informative


    • easy to read


    • useful to others





    Guidelines are available in Community Help Posting Guidelines.




    Enjoy Newbies Corner. Make your question useful in future as a reference for yourself and others.

    saikee, in your excellent articles re: installing/multibooting 145 systems with grub, you say it took you only about 10-15 minutes to install each one, regardless of which. i have experimented with a few linux distros and always found it took me more than an hour to install each. how do you do it?

    This probably isn't the best thread to ask that in.

    saikee: Maybe split these two posts off and lock the thread so that it doesn't get used for questions? I'll leave it up to you since it's your thread.

    Did you mean this?

    "Justlinux prides itself for having relatively small redundant and irrelevant information."

    I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or meant "RELEVANT" information?

    I think the small is supposed to apply to both redundant and irrelevant, but "little" was probably the word he was looking for there. I think that makes it clearer.

    I just want to say hello. NEW to Linux with about 5 aborted attempts at learning while I was working. Now retired and want to devote a larger portion of time to actually following through on learning what I didn't have time to do before. I have a laptop and a tower to play with and looking at Raspberry Pi for interaction with real world electronic "experiments". In the past my MAJOR stumbling block was help was NOT helpful because any questions I asked were answered with terms and acronyms because the person answering the question assumed too much knowledge on my part. Frustration lead to just shutting down and doing something else.

    Newbie question: Where can I look for a relevant "glossary" so I can understand what people are talking about. 20 years of <insert unmentionable OS> and it seems that little relates to Linux. In the past people asked questions of ME and I didn't know what they were talking about.
