Mirrors, Translations, Versions, Formats, URLs

URLs in this Document

Many times I have mentioned MetaLab formerly known as SunSite. This site carries a heavy load, so do yourself a favor, use one of the MetaLab mirrors .

For Debian/GNU Linux the mirror URLs are organized in the scheme http://www.<country code, e.g. uk>.debian.org .

Nearly all of the programs I mention are available as Debian/GNU Linux package, or as RPM package. Look up your favorite RPM server, for instance rpmfind .

Proposed Translations

The following translations are under construction:

  • Chinese, John Lian <johnlian_AT_riverrich.com.tw>

  • Greek, Vassilis Rizopoulos <mscyvr_AT_scs.leeds.ac.uk>

  • Italian, Alessandro Grillo <Alessandro_Grillo_AT_tivoli.com>,

  • Japanese, Ryoichi Sato <rsato_AT_ipf.de>,

  • Portuguese, Gledson Evers <pulga_linux_AT_bol.com.br>

  • Slovenia, Ales Kosir <ales.kosir_AT_hermes.si>

  • Spanish, Jaime Robles <ea4abw_AT_amsat.org>

Please contact me before starting a translation to avoid double work. Since a translation is a great amount of work, I recommend to do this work as a group, for instance together with your local Linux Users Group - LUG.
