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
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.
