I'd like to remind all members about two new features we recently added to LQ. First, you are now able to mark a thread as [Solved] by clicking "Mark this thread as solved" under "Thread Tools". The thread will remain open, but this will let other members who are having a similar issue know your thread contains a solution. Second, if you find a post has helped you, remember to click Yes next to "Did you find this post helpful?". After receiving a minimum number of Yes votes, the most helpful post in a thread will be highlighted.

Did you know has an official Firefox search add-on? Visit for more information. You can also automatically install the add-on by clicking the icon in your Firefox search engine box and selecting "Add".

A reminder that answering threads with no replies is a great way to help your fellow LQ members. Visit to get a list of Zero Reply Threads, or add to your feed reader. You can also sign up for the Zero Reply Email by visiting the Options section of MyLQ.


Linux from Scratch describes the process of creating your own Linux system from scratch from an already installed Linux distribution, using nothing but the source code of software that you need.

This 318 page eBook provides readers with the background and instruction to design and build custom Linux systems. The resulting system will be compiled completely from the source code, and the user will be able to specify where, why, and how programs are installed. This eBook allows readers to fully customize Linux systems to their own needs and allows users more control over their system.
