I’ve spent a lot of time today editing the LinuxQuestions.org Wiki. I am personally not a big fan of the LQ wiki. I think its setup is pitiful and could be a lot better. Its very limiting in what it allows you do in regards to content creation. Either way though I added some fairly major things to it. I created a page there for Paludis. Its almost empty there is so little on it, but it still there none the less. I hoped that maybe if I got the ball rolling someone else would come along and help me out. I also added the make.conf page. Apparently everyone was linking to it but no one wanted to write the page so I wrote one. I don’t know how well I did but I added a fair amount of content to it. I must admit though I do enjoy going through the LQ wiki. In comparison to say the Gentoo wiki its just about empty. Especially if your looking for information on Gentoo. If I needed help with Ubuntu, Mandriva, or Fedora you’d be set. I think that says something for the reputation of LQ or at least its wiki. I find that a lot of wikis in general though have gotten a bad rap. When it comes to like Wikipedia that’s understandable. I have read some crap on there before. I’ve seen articles there that describe how George Bush body slammed foriegin politicians.
In other news I have paludis up and running on system now. I felt like a idoit when I went on the paludis IRC channel asking what was wrong only to find out it was all my fault. I had just blindly copied and pasted the paludis config files. So here’s my AMD64 system trying to do everything like an x86. No wonder it wasn’t working. I have it straightened out now though. Paludis development is moving a long fairly quickly as well. It doesn’t have a release schedule but it does get released on a fairly regular basis. Again if you haven’t tried it yet, try it. Its nice.
Enjoy the Penguins!
