Sorry! It is just I have heard people talking about something like "Web Platform Docs" for ages (though maybe that is just a reflection on where I work). Anyway, didn't mean to ruin the fun.

Also, of course Santa exists!

By Didier's suggestion I took a quick look at our wiki. I didn't really get him at first. He meant also contributing the content, not only translations.


The available articles are in Serbian, but could be translated to English. The main problem is that most of the articles are already covered by appropriate articles on SDP, even if the guides were written separately. We do have a translation of the AlienBob's multilib guide, though.

We also often write a kind of step by step guides with screensots included. When I last looked at SDP, I really didn't know if that would be in any way interesting to the project.

Most (if not all) of these articles come from our forum.


Currently available articles:
Installation guide (13.37 atm, but will be updated soon)
Installing Slackware from USB stick
Adding a new user (yes we have a full tutorial even on that)
X11 startup guide for beginners (default init level, startx)
Slackware and encrypted /home and swap partitions
Serbian language guide (this might also be interesting for other non-native english speakers)
Minimal Slackware Install
System monitoring
A safe file deletion
A basic Apache + PHP setup
A basic MySQL setup
How to remove the background of XFCE desktop icons
Setting keyboard layout in XFCE (one way)
Setting keyboard layout in XFCE (other way) (needs an update)
gtkrc-2.0 and QGtkStyle
How to set user agent string in Mozilla Firefox
VirtualBox and sharing folders using Samba
General guide to unpacking compressed archives
Update of microcode for Intel and AMD processors

Using Synergy for sharing multiple keyboards and mices on one computer
How to create a simple patch
Yet another guide for new kernel installation

There are also a several basic GNU/Linux and *nix guides:
Simple fstab guide
A simple guide to *nix file permissions

I'm sure I' missed out some article, but this gives a general idea. Please use Google Translate to make any sense of the articles. If you think something of this can be used, you're free to use it, or ask for a translation. Content from our forum and wiki is avaliable under CC-BY-SA license, so it's freely mixable with similary licensed material or GFDL.

I already mentioned a translation of AlienBob's multilib guide. The guys from LUGoNS did a translation of Slackware Essentials 2.0. Both could be included if you add the support for Serbian language in Docuwiki. But please wait a bit so we can organize ourselves in transfering existing or translating new articles. We will post a request on SDP mailing list when we're ready.

Hi bobzilla

I hope I will have some time soon to run your pages through a translator. You already have a lot of content there!

I have updated the configuration of the translation plugin of the SDP Wiki. It will recognize serbian (the RS country code) now. If you add a page, it will switch the Wiki interface to serbian completely.

If you could give me a translation of this text (the bits after the pipe symbols), I can fix the left sidebar already:
Code:
  * [[:start|Main Page]]

----------

  * [[slackdocs:news#project_charter|Project Charter]]
  * [[slackdocs:news|Site News]]
  * [[slackdocs:contact|Staff]]
  * [[toc:start|Table of Contents]]
Thanks, Eric

A question:
I want to make this tutorial http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...r_over_network which I once wrote for LQ available as a tutorial in the howtos of the Slackware-documentation-project. But I'm not sure if it belongs to the hardware-, or the network-part.

Any suggestions?

Markus

Eric, I just stumbled upon the slides from your "Language support in Slackware" presentation (Brasil, 2010). I found it very useful (thanx). Is this information available in some form (the basics) on the SDP wiki?

Hi bobzilla,

This information is still lacking on the SDP wiki. A new page on localizing Slackware would be very useful.

I'm exploring the topic right now and will try writing a guide when I catch some time. I'll introduce myself on the mailing list first. And later post the first draft. I hope for a review of other international Slackware users.

Thanx,

Bojan.

silence....
i think, if anyone can write a howto, of:
install slackware on external (usb) hdd with choosing options at boot - to boot installed slackware or boot for slackware install ( usb-installer to install slackware itself) it be very good thing.
i buyed 500gb usb toshiba hdd for 41 eur, who is very cheap i think, and plan to install working set of slackware in one of partitions. but be very good, if from the same disc i can install latest slackware on a new computers too...

the same thing about usb flash. also be excellent, if there can be possibility to install two distro on choice - slackware or slackware64.

Hello,

I would like to ask the Slackware documentation team to include a guide (or how-to or something like that) for configuring a mobile internet connection on Slackware (using a usb 3g device). Searching the net one can find relevant information about many aspects of this subject but I think it would be very helpfull if all information is gathered and presented as a tutorial, a how-to etc... (as it is the case of wireless network configuration). For example which packets are needed, which devices are supported, how can one check if usb is recognized as network device, configuration options etc...

Maybe you should click on each link and see for yourself. Just different sites with information on Slackware. For a new user, I suggest that they look at Slackware Doc Project first. Supplement information from
SlackWiiki. Each site will enhance ones understanding.

Have fun & enjoy!
Hope this helps.
