I've had other suggestions about "pinning" or "sticking this
material up" on nslu2-linux.org, but how?
In the HowTo Recipes section, which I assume is the appropriate
place, the only instructions that seem relevant are:
"This page is password protected. If you need to add content to this
page, then please create a new page with your content (you do not
need a password to create a new page), then post the URL of your new
page to the nslu2-linux mailing list and we will link it into this
While it says one can create a new page without a password, I
couldn't find any link for doing that except for maybe the sandbox.
Plus, I don't have time to recode my multipage tutorial anyway.
Maybe the howto section can just link to my existing pbwiki tutorial?
Okay, so, how does one post the url to the mailing list?
Ah, MailingLists! English Mailing List. Click and go there.
What, Yahoo Groups?!
So I'm back here in what appears to be an endless loop.
Speaking of scattered...
I tried my tutorial as a wiki at first but could see that
contributors were making it less clear and adding contradictory
statements, much like what I found in some of the nslu2-linux.org
howto's. This wiki concept has great potential but at times it's
like watching our US political debates and advertising: one
assertion contradicts a prior one, then something new is asserted,
which is never answered, etc. etc. leaving a newbie totally confused
and wondering what bits of advice to choose from without knowing
enough to even tackle such decisions. In this case I decided to
just make it a tutorial that I know works.
Making a page on the wiki is simple. You can just create any page you
want to. For instance you could create http://www.nslu2-
linux.org/wiki/Applications/TwonkyVision (except that this one already
There are a few pages protected to avoid vandalism. The howto page and
the front page are two of them. If you have modifications for those
you need to send an email to this group.
Feel free to update the twonky page mentioned above. Also if your page
is very good and you are worried about vandalism, first of all the
previous content can be installed easily, and if the page is really
good you can ask to get the page protected as well (don't know about
the policy for those though.
