Some additions to the PLUC Wiki

Postby arifishaq » Wed Mar 17, 2004 9:59 pm

I have done some additions to the PLUC Wiki.

In particular, I have added the category "CategoryGuideWanted" as a place holder for pages people think should be in the wiki.

As an example, I have added the "NewToLinux" category under "CategoryHowto". This should contain things that seem obvious to any Linux user but may be baffling for a newcomer.

Please feel free to modify everything.

Asalaam-u-Alikum!

I have also done some additions to wiki: Linux Software List

It is just a small structure yet, which will help you understand how things are going. Just follow the structure and add whatever you want, if you have some better ideas about it then pleaase also post them here.

Thanks

Personally, I hate the Wiki , its confusing for a newbie, but it makes editing fast,

Anyway, i put up an installing rpms howto, because so many people ask these questions and there wasn't anything like it on the wiki,

http://www.linuxpakistan.net/wiki/index ... allingRpms

So the next time someone asks refer them there as well i guess

BarLas,

Very useful links. Is it asking too much to "add" them to the Category page? As it is, one has to either go through your home page or search for it.

Jargon,

Nice work with the RPM instructions.
I hate Wiki too. Ok, not exactly hate but I dislike it. Still, it's quite effective as a "groupware" tool.

No, all you have to do is write one line, actually it is just the start and also i am not sure about which category this list belongs to..... You can always edit it yourself or tell me the category name and i will link it in that category :)

Ignore all languagual mistakes :)
