IBM Doc Buddy now has Linux and z/VM messages

IBM Doc Buddy start screen

IBM Doc Buddy is a mobile app that allows for retrieving explanation on IBM z error message codes. Now you can also get Linux and z/VM messages offline explained with this app.
You can get the application from Apples Appstore or from Google Play, depending on the mobile device you use.

The information is the same as in the books (note that Ubuntu and Red Hat don’t have included the message numbers yet):

You first have to download the messages for the “component” you want. To do that touch the button in the upper left corner and then select the respective component. Then you can start typing into the search field and select the message of interest:
