Please review these links that are going to be included in MEPIS 8.0 Manual. This now only includes links that have not been checked; the original full list is in Jerry's sandbox. Please make sure the information is up-to-date, accurate, and is well and consistently formated. Once you finish an article please mark the link with "good" or "done", "needs more info", "needs update" or any other informative tag that you might feel you need to add. Thanks.

Tips and tricks Not OK AdrianTM 19:35, 18 December 2008 (EST) This is only a stub with chaotic info... we either remove it from the manual or make a more logical structure for the page and add more info. AdrianTM 19:35, 18 December 2008 (EST). Adrian, I agree, and I would vote for moving it out and putting anything useful in another place. Masinick 11:34, 19 December 2008 (EST)Too late, Manual is gone. There's other stuff we could put in here Jerry bond 09:04, 21 December 2008 (EST)

Wicd OK Eselma 11:53, 12 January 2009 (EST) The article is referred only to SM 6.5 and 7.0, not to 8.0. The link to the repository should be "deb http://apt.wicd.net lenny extras" ; also the "wget" stuff should require updating. As my English is so poor, please any native-speaker could review it. [Cookdav: Ok, I added the repo link for SM8.0, per comment above by Eselma.]
