Wiki topic OK_MEPIS7 Reviewer Comment
Add_Trashcan_on_Desktop Yes AdrianTM 13:30, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Question: isn't this in MEPIS 7.0? Jerry bond: out now for new version for Final
Adjusting_Monitor_Gamma Yes --Carlops 15:03, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Saist, for readability I removed your preliminary remarks. Hope it's OK...
Alternative_boot_methods OK Acesabe 11:00, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
ATI_supported_cards OK Saist 17:06, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Aufs OK Jerry bond 01:55, 18 September 2007 (EDT) Wrote it for M7, checked by kmathern
Boot_options Pending Jerry bond 05:21, 21 September 2007 (EDT) Need to get new options from LiveCD
Category:Customization OK for now Jerry bond 08:12, 27 October 2007 (EDT) Comment: for these 3 categories we need to check if the pages listed belong to these categories, also we need to write a nice description for each category. AdrianTM 19:05, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
Category:Installation OK Acesabe 09:56, 24 September 2007 (EDT) Links all active - edited a couple of linked pages to 7.x spec.
Category:KDE OK Acesabe 09:56, 24 September 2007 (EDT) Konqueror page is hungry for more info! Several pages are old
Cedega OK ronnielsen1 11:04, 18 September 2007 (CDT) Minor spelling errors
Change_Wallpaper OK AdrianTM 22:03, 19 September 2007 (EDT)
Compiling Pending lykwydchykyn 22:09, 22 September 2007 (EDT) It's good, but currently "checkinstall" is not in the repos. We have asked warren to make it available, but we can't be sure it will be. I don't know of a replacement for it.
Converting_unsupported_file_types Yes lykwydchykyn 22:06, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Good
Creating_a_link_on_the_desktop Yes lykwydchykyn 21:51, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Fleshed out and checked against beta 7.
Customizing_GRUB OK Acesabe 20 Sept 2007 Could be edited to use current configs - but it is only an example
Dansguardian_setup No lykwydchykyn 21:31, 17 September 2007 (EDT) See discussion page; problems with this method in Mep 7. Left in Manual since Wiki warns and is more flexible
Database_Server Yes lykwydchykyn 15:53, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Currently only talks about installing and rudimentary configuration of MySQL 5. Should probably be expanded to a fuller discussion of database servers. On my todo list, unless someone beats me to it.
DNS_Server Yes lykwydchykyn 22:30, 18 September 2007 (EDT) Good
Dpkg-reconfigure_xserver-xorg OK Acesabe 18 Sept 2007Reading through - it already mentions the missing parts but added compositing and Appletouch references
Edit_Kicker OK Jerry bond 08:04, 19 September 2007 (EDT) Cleaned up, added example
Editing_the_GRUB_menu OK --Carlops 15:33, 17 September 2007 (EDT)
Enable_Power_Management Reviewed --Carlops 15:36, 17 September 2007 (EDT) As from 6.5, xorg.conf has already been configured for DPMS
Fatal_Error:_No_Screens_Found NO Acesabe 20 Sept 2007 This is legacy info - it should not be referenced at all in the Mepis 7 documentation! Out in new version for Final Jerry bond 07:57, 8 November 2007 (EST)
Firestarter Yes Jerry bond 15:38, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
FTP OK, please do a quick review for grammar AdrianTM 11:44, 20 September 2007 (EDT) Reviewed: perfect English!
FTP_Server OK, please review for grammar AdrianTM 11:44, 20 September 2007 (EDT) Reviewed: perfect English!
G4l Yes lykwydchykyn 09:38, 19 September 2007 (EDT) Nothing MEPIS-specific in this article, however, it could use a look-over by someone other than the author (me) to make sure it's sensible.
General_Knowledge_Database#Terminology No AdrianTM 12:35, 20 September 2007 (EDT) I think this either needs to be removed from manual or linked directly to the article that explains the terminology, or to the Category:Terminology. -- AdrianTM 23:35, 20 September 2007 (EDT) Linked directly Jerry bond 07:57, 8 November 2007 (EST)
Getting_and_Installing_MEPIS Pending Acesabe 20 Sept 2007 System requirements page need updating,
GRUB Pending Acesabe 18 Sept 2007 Needs menu.lst entries for MEPIS 7 inserted
GRUB_from_command_line OK Acesabe 18 Sept 2007 No change/edits/additions needed
Guarddog OK Acesabe20 Sept 2007 More on specific zone config would be good - csledbetter may add some here - or links to specific how-to's
Hardware#Printers OK Acesabe 10:11, 24 September 2007 (EDT) Links all ok -couple of url updates made
Increase_Resolution NO Acesabe 20 Sept 2007 This info is not good advice - and unlikely to work well! Better advice would be to use the live CD + F3 at Grub to select res, then re-install Xconf, or dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, also entering monitor freqs in mxconfig - why isn't there a choice of resolutions in mxconfig??? Will ask Warren...
Install_Brother_Printer_Drivers OK Acesabe 10:11, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
Install_Canon_ixxx_Printer_Drivers OK/Pending Acesabe 10:11, 24 September 2007 (EDT) Contains info which uses packages from Ubuntu Hoary - likely to fail! Needs checking and updating Added warning to Wiki page Jerry bond 07:57, 8 November 2007 (EST)
Installing_/_Removing_Software OK Acesabe20 Sept 2007 This page just links to many other pages - itself seems ok - not significant changes to this in 7 - but there may be individual pages with errors or out dated references
Installing_Software OK Acesabe20 Sept 2007 All up to date - is Autopackage worth adding to this page?
Installing_without_a_CD Pending Acesabe20 Sept 2007 No mention of installation using Mepis USB drive, or the possibility of moving to hard drive to a similar pc (with CDROM/USB boot), installing to HD then returning drive to original pc - and how this may not always work
Iptables OK Acesabe20 Sept 2007 Could do with more info using the iptables commands?

KDE_file_server Yes lykwydchykyn 21:28, 21 September 2007 (EDT) still good
KDEWallet OK Acesabe 10:43, 24 September 2007 (EDT) I don't use it - but I think it looks to be up to date

LTSP_Server OK...sort of lykwydchykyn 22:17, 17 September 2007 (EDT) The method described here is the older way, it should still work fine, but there is a meta-package now that does some newer better stuff. Not a quick rewrite, though.
Main_Page OK AdrianTM 14:43, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Main page can remain like this if MEPIS general theme doesn't change
MEPIS_doesn't_boot_to_graphical_login OK Acesabe 18 Sept 2007 Needs re-write - 2nd part changed to use msystem not 'Install me'.Oops - meant MEPIS X Assistant!All correct now Acesabe 10:39, 7 October 2007 (EDT)
MEPIS_irc_channel OK Acesabe 10:34, 7 October 2007 (EDT) Not sure how active the channel is - but were 16 people in when i checked Sunday afternoon (GMT)
Midnight_commander Yes Jerry bond 15:24, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
Monitor_and_Display_Setup OK Acesabe 20 Sept 2007 Two sections are marked legacy info, also no mention of using Grub - F3 from the live CD to select desired resolution
My_computer Yes lykwydchykyn 21:54, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
Network_interface_varies Uncertain lykwydchykyn 21:57, 21 September 2007 (EDT) I have a machine which had this problem on 6.5. It has not had this issue on 7 beta. We can't be sure this will be an issue, but if it is I can only assume the fix will still work as Mep 7 still uses udev.
NVIDIA_supported_cards Pending Acesabe 18 Sept 2007 Changes to read MEPIS 7 and alterations to add Compiz(-Fusion) - Updated information to the 100.xx series. Saist 17:11, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

POP3_Server OK Jerry bond 08:30, 3 November 2007 (EST)
Print_Server Yes lykwydchykyn 00:20, 20 September 2007 (EDT) Could use some more info, but ok for now.

Runlevel OK --Carlops 15:30, 17 September 2007 (EDT)
Securing_GRUB OK Acesabe 18 Sept 2007 Grub hasn't changed much - info looks to be ok
SMTP_Server OK Jerry bond 08:30, 3 November 2007 (EST)
Sound_Driver_Database Probably No AdrianTM 14:04, 29 September 2007 (EDT) While this list is useful I think is too tied to the version of the MEPIS for which it was created -- might not have much relevance for MEPIS 7, some cards that work in 6.5 might not work in 7 and the other way round. Added warning to Wiki page Jerry bond 07:57, 8 November 2007 (EST)
Sound_not_working OK Jerry bond 07:09, 27 October 2007 (EDT) Parent and first-level child pages OK, did not look at pages for specific cards
Soundblaster_Extigy OK Jerry bond 07:09, 27 October 2007 (EDT) Not my area, but commands are still correct
SSHFS yes lykwydchykyn 23:03, 23 September 2007 (EDT) Updated for 7.
Supported_webcams OK, sort of Jerry bond 14:59, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Updated form, but webcams may need retesting
Testing_your_hardware_for_problems OK Acesabe 06:45, 25 September 2007 (EDT) This page could no doubt include more - but the basics are there. Some good links would be a plus
Trying_MEPIS Yes lykwydchykyn 16:32, 19 September 2007 (EDT) Nothing version-specific here.
Unstable_Connection OK Acesabe 06:45, 25 September 2007 (EDT) Should page title not include 'wireless' (I added it to page content)
Upgrade_vs._dist-upgrade OK AdrianTM 20:54, 17 September 2007 (EDT) Short, but to the object I think
Useful_links OK AdrianTM 01:18, 20 September 2007 (EDT) Feel free to add/remove links

VMWare OK AdrianTM 18:28, 24 September 2007 (EDT) Information is for Dapper Drake. VMware does not appear to be in the Debian Etch or Mepis 7 Repositories Saist 18:05, 4 October 2007 (EDT)
VNC_Server OK Jerry bond 09:45, 1 November 2007 (EST) All in repos for 7.0
Web_Server Maybe lykwydchykyn 22:14, 18 September 2007 (EDT) Other than a mention of MEPIS 3.3, the text is correct; but we already have "LAMP", should we just roll the two together?
  • I removed 3.3 reference, I think this should stay separated since it's not related to M and P in LAMP AdrianTM 01:21, 20 September 2007 (EDT)
Webmin Yes lykwydchykyn 23:02, 18 September 2007 (EDT) Overhauled for mep 7, should be Good.
WEP OK Jerry bond 14:37, 26 October 2007 (EDT)
Windows_to_MEPIS OK AdrianTM 18:54, 18 September 2007 (EDT) This was well written and not version specific
Windows_to_MEPIS_migration OK AdrianTM 19:02, 18 September 2007 (EDT) This was well written and not version specific
Wine_setup Yes Brooko , 30 September 2007 (EDT) Updated lykwyd's first edit - I think it is OK - but would like someone to check. I fixed the winehq update method and also added a section on install via community deb.
Wireless_card_not_detected OK --Carlops 02:33, 30 September 2007 (EDT) Updated a bit. This is work in progress, since new issues may pop op
