Linux Wiki

This is the page, where I collect useful stuff about Linux in different categories. These are solutions mostly for the problems I have encountered in recent years. Not everything is here, I was a little bit too late document, something that happened to me in 2006, and they wouldn't be useful for a newer system anyway.

Last update: 2020-10-07
