The Debian GNU/Linux FAQ
Chapter 1 - Definitions and overview
1.1 What is this FAQ?
This document gives frequently asked questions (with their answers!) about the
Debian distribution (Debian GNU/Linux and others) and about the Debian project.
If applicable, pointers to other documentation will be given: we won't quote
large parts of external documentation in this document. You'll find out that
some answers assume some knowledge of Unix-like operating systems. We'll try
to assume as little prior knowledge as possible: answers to general beginners
questions will be kept simple.
If you can't find what you're looking for in this FAQ, be sure to check out What other documentation exists on and
for a Debian system?, Section 11.1. If even that doesn't help, refer to Feedback, Section 15.2.
