Just created a Debian web portal site and it need some good content.


Hello all,

I've created a nice Debian web portal site with useful information for newbies and experiences like.

It will have links to useful sites that have helped me and others. It will also have HOWTOs, tutorials, guides and etc that I have found to be very useful and USER-FRIENDLY. That is the key here - user-friendly.

Anyway, I was wondering if you guys have anything you want to share that I could add?

HOWTOs sites that have helped you in the past, great tutorials on commands, vi editor, exim, installation guide and etc?

Just post your links and I'll weed through them.

Thanks in advance.

Well...Ah Hem

You forgot to tell us just one thing...


The URL!


Also who will own the copyrights to the information hosted on your server?

Do you have EULA or something in GNU regarding the content and information that will
reside on your server?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I recommend a creative commons license (or something similar). If you pick something like that, then I would be wiling to help out with a tutorial or something (if you want). But, if you pick a copy right that is too restrictive, then I won't help.

So, how about that URL?

First of all, he's asking for suggestions.. adding the URL since he only has 0 posts will result in no URL until he's reached the 5 post limit. I also would recommend him not to post such URL and stick with asking for suggestions, doing so in adding a URL will come off as blatant advertising.

I give the original author credit and I am not making money off it. It is noncommercial and it is open to anyone.

I've seen so much good tutorials, HOWTOs and guides scattered all over the net. I simply want to bring them all together.

I will certainly use the Creative Commons License.

Thanks for the links and do you guys have any good tutorials on Exim?

It'll have plenty of content in a short period of time.

Don't worry, I've retired so I can't harm you, alred.

hmm ....... still hard to trust you guys .........
Ha ! movie reference anyway , as what i had once been ridiculed down here ....

i got some links which i find them useful , at least for an amature user like me.......

some links within this page
athough they are non-technical :
http://redstone.sourceforge.net/computing.html

as for technical one and more on beginning programming reference :
http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/lk/lk.html
http://www.cs.unh.edu/cnrg/gherrin/linux-net.html
http://www.netfor2.com/contents.htm
http://www.osdever.net/tutorials.php?cat=0&sort=1
http://tigr.net/afterstep/X/xlib/contents.html

never try to know anything about copy-rights
check yourself if you need to know them

these links are possibly very old news for you anyway ......
but still good luck to you

Well he could put the URL into his profile.

As for advertising what it is the link to reference that LQ rule?

ExCIA,

I am not putting you down. I am just answering your question with a question.

Yes he could put the url in his profile, that's what its there for, to link others to your own personal or own website, but creating threads to make others aware is a form of advertising and or using these forums to your own advantage, which is part of this rule:

There is no selling allowed in the forums. If you are interested in advertising you can email ads@linuxquestions.org.

Linking others to your own site, commercial or private is a form of selling it to others and another form of advertising, even if you aren't selling anything.

Regards.

Yea, Creative Commons seems the way to go for what you're trying to accomplish. If you choose a copyright like that, I'd be willing to lend a hand as well. G'luck.
