On behalf of the entire team, I'd like to wish you a happy, healthy and safe Holiday Season.

We're looking for feedback on how we can improve the current Helpful system at LQ. We've made some temporary changes, but are interested to hear how you think the system can be improved long term. Visit to join the current discussion. As with many changes that occur at LQ, this discussion was started by member feedback. If you any suggestions or feedback for us, please visit and let us know.

Would you like to help and the greater Linux community? The LQ Wiki is a collaboratively built knowledge base for all things Linux and Open Source related. All content is available under an Open Source license. Because the site is a wiki, anyone can help the site grow. That means sharing your knowledge with the Linux community has never been easier. Whether you have a great tip to share, would like to improve the entry for your favorite application or are able to help improve spelling/grammar - your contributions really do make a difference. Head to and make an edit today.


User Mode Linux

With User Mode Linux you can create virtual Linux machines within a Linux computer and use them to safely test and debug applications, network services, and even kernels. You can try out new distributions, experiment with buggy software, and even test security. Now, for the first time, the creator and maintainer of User Mode Linux shows how to put it to work hands-on. Jeff Dike covers everything from getting started through running enterprise-class User Mode Linux servers.
