This page is currently under construction. The final result will be a merged Post Installation Tips and Beginners' Guide Appendix. See Talk:Post Installation Tips#Duplication of effort (merge?) for details.

The intended style is that of an "index" of popular or otherwise frequently-sought information. This page should contain no real "content", but rather short introductions/descriptions of a problem/application followed by a suitable wiki link for interested parties.

HAL redundancy

Restored from old inline talk
Dres 22:19, 15 January 2010 (EST) I personally don't see the correlation between installing a de/wm and hal's functionality. Yes, it is required by Xorg, but this is not the reason given for its setup. pwd 04:09, 26 December 2009 (EST)

And which should take precedence; this or #Hardware auto-recognition? pwd 05:11, 26 December 2009 (EST)


Doing layout first is a nice idea... good thinking.

Hardware auto recognition/udev

pointone, good call on updating this to today's reality. hwdetect and its kin really aren't noteworthy any more. pwd 13:42, 23 December 2009 (EST)
