I believe you ought to start with Help:Contents if you are going to welcome users with it ;). Maybe you should link make links to the main page or move the FAQ here.

BTW, Why does andLinux use HDD so much (4GB seems to be not enough to start it)? Would it help if would change the amount of RAM used for andLinux?

Oh, could you consider changing andLinux:Copyrights to dual-licence GFDL and CC-BY-SA?

Hi, from me too.

I'd like to see a page where we can add questions and see answers added too, so that it evolves into a FAQ. Can I add such a page, or is there any special policy what is expected from the users of the wiki what they are allowed to do and what is not wanted?

My expierience with andLinux (which I just installed in the RC6 KDE version on my Vista 32 bit Sony Notebook, as a service, using a file share/samba) is that it installs nicely and also starts well (both your part, it seems). I also see the little K-Menu button near the clock at the right bottom and when I click on it, I can see the menu.

However, whichever menu item I click, I get an error message that it can't connect to (Same when I direct start start the exe files in c:\Program Files\andLinux\Launcher ). I opened port 81 in my (standard vista) firewall but that did not help. I additionaly also excluded TAP-Colinux from the firewall - Vista warned against it- but again this did not help. I even disabled the vista Firewall completly. Again it did not help. So the problem seems not to be a firewall issue.

Instead, when I issue a "ipfonfig /all" on the windows cmd line, I see all kind of ipadresses (including 4 "tunel adapter" 6, 9, 18 and 20, which were not present before teh instalation of addlinux, I think), but none of these are in the 192.168.11.* range (2 are in the 192.168.172.* range). So this looks to me as if the ipadress, to which addLinux wants to connect, is simply not present on my notebook. But the addLinux services are running in the background.

Update (19:24): The problem has been solved after I rebooted another time (I had already rebooted teh computer once after the update before). Now I see with "ipconfig /all" the "TAP-Win32 Adapter V8 (coLinux)" at and so now I can start applications from teh little K-Menu near the clock without error messages. Great work! (When I first read about it in the current ct magazine, I thought it might be a candidate for the april joke article).

Something different: the current k-menu only offers a small percentage of the applications installed in the addlinux kde distrubution (however some of the most important ones). Is there a possibility to add more applications also with submenus? Related to this: where in the filesysten is the linux fileystem? Could one add applications from that Linux file system by adding them to Launcher/menu.txt ? (Is there somewhere a documentation for addlinux that answers such questions, beside the few items on the addlinx pages and the - new and therfor nearly empty - wiki?).

Wellcoming message

Hi, I finally did it to here! thanks for your help. As suggested above, I would consider changing the copyrights to GFDL + CC, because the GFDL had not been made for online content originally. --Mathieu Perrin 15:30, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, this indeed makes sense. I've extended the andLinux:Copyrights accordingly. --Joachim 11:46, 8 June 2008 (UTC)
