If you are looking for something that is not covered in this Manual, these MEPIS resources are available for more help.

Wiki

The MEPIS Wiki contains a great deal of other material. As an ongoing product of volunteer users, it can be more up-to-date and detailed than the Manual. Here's how to find what you're looking for:

  1. Follow the structure by drilling down in the four areas laid out on the Main Page:
    • Getting Started: intended to provide new MEPIS users with the basic tools to get their system up and running.
    • General Knowledge Database: intended to provide users with more advanced tools to understand and use their MEPIS system.
    • Help and Guides: self-explanatory title, there is great stuff here for MEPIS users.
    • Wiki Issues: topics pertaining to the Wiki itself.
  2. Consult Special Pages:
    • Click on the Wiki Categories link in the left panel, and select your topic of interest. This is a very useful but often overlooked way to find answers to your questions.
    • If you are looking for something added recently, click on the Recent Changes link.
    • Click on the link Special pages for other possible aids.
