Moin - that's a German word for 'G'day' - in particular in the northern area of Germany ;-)

I'm not new to Linux - I use OpenSuSE for about 10 years now. Lately I set up a box for my parent in law ( > 70 ) - detected Mint - installed it for him and he loves Mint :D .
I also installed Mint 10 on my primary box in parallel to openSuSE - and see some differences between these two distros - and have some questions about config etc. That's why I joined this forum.

I'm familiar with networking and wrote a script which collects network information and should help people who have issues with networking to provide info about their system so it's possible to help then. In addition most common config errors are detected and reported. It evolved on an openSuSE distro - but runs on mint and other Linux distros - but openSuSE specific tests are not done. Looks like it will get additional special support for mint later or sooner ;-) Any hints or suggestions how to add additional value to the generated output for Mint for networking problem isolation are welcome. Would be glad if this script also will help users in this forum to get their networking issues solved like it does for the openSuSE community.

I'm going to ask questions - there are differences between openSuSE and Mint - but I hope I also will be able to help other people in distro independent issues and questions.

BTW interesting script, if u'd like other translations, just PM me.
Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

Very nice. I frankly like to have this kind of irc chan for mint. I joined the chans and followed the discussions for a while. But frankly - why should I post any issues I have in this forum if I have the irc help channel? That way I get an answer immediately - and nobody knows about my issue and can use the search function in this forum to find the solution for my issue on his own. ... Form an individual point of view a chan is very useful - I get an answer very quickly - but from a community point of view I got help from a chan to get my issue solved - but next time somebody else has the same issue he's not able to find the solution I got in the chan because it's not recorded in this forum.

From my point of view as somebody who has a community view a forum is the central point where everybody should post his issue so that later on everybody who has the same or similar issue can find the answer by searching the forum. So I'm going to use the forum for my issues - and join the chan in my spare time just to have some chats :D

I now follow the forum for about a month. I thought I can provide help for other mint users, but every time I check for new postings > 5 people already handled them -so I feel useless :cry: . Just kidding ... Summary: I very impressed about the support people get on mint in this forum :!:
