Announcing The Answers Archive

In months gone by we've put PDFs of Linux Format articles online for conversion to different formats and, thanks to the excellent work of the community, we've been able to expand our wiki with more guides and help for all Linux users. Cheers to everyone who got involved!

Now we're looking to do something similar, but with the Answers section of the magazine. Each month, we print problems and solutions in Answers and we'd love to be able to share the fixes with the internet. So we're starting a new project -- The Answers Archive -- and you'll find all the information here:

Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to help out, and if you have any questions, just holler!

I looked over your XML, and it's just fine. There are a couple of very minor errors (the most common one being "dflksjdflkjdfljdsf" rather than "dflksjdflkjdfljdsf" - that / is very important!), but these are easily fixed.

Thanks for helping!

I looked over your XML, and it’s just fine. There are a couple of very minor errors (the most common one being "<question>dflksjdflkjdfljdsf<question>" rather than "<question>dflksjdflkjdfljdsf</question>" - that / is very important!), but these are easily fixed.
