Question New Wiki? Error Messages with Solutions


After reading one post, the OP seemed to be trying to explain what later seemed like a good idea to me. Why not have a catalog of error messages that people find or get and cross reference that with the solution that was found?

It would be a lot of work, and perhaps an entirely different web site would be required, as someone would need to provide solutions for various error messages. This would help the Linux Community, as people would be able to go to one place to look up error messages, as well as provide solutions that they have found. The idea being that it would not be a post forum, but only have the error message, the reasons that errror message happens, and the solution. No more wasting hours and hours reading through posts if you know what the error messsages are!

People who are stuck with Linux usually try to search based on the error messages, if they can find them. By providing solutions based on the error messages, you can help to alleviate some of the difficulties found by the Linux user.

This sounds like something the LQ Wiki would be good for.

Additionally, LinuxExchange may be appropriate for this as well: with the error message as the question and the correct solution as the accepted answer.
