Converting VOB to isos



Hi R Wilson, I've made a request for comment with regard to a debate we're having about categorization of articles. If you could take a look here LinuxMCE Wiki talk:Community Portal when you have time and perhaps leave a comment I'd be very grateful.

Thanks. Lozzo 11:36, 8 October 2007 (MST)

Hi, thanks for your comments before. I've expanded a bit here on the differences between lists and categories, and why I think that a list article might be better. To clarify, I do believe that a big list of hardware is very useful - but that categories are not the best way to achieve this. I look forward to hearing your comments!
Many thanks! Lozzo 07:07, 9 October 2007 (MST)

Minor changes

Thanks for all the work you do on the wiki... I really appreciate it as it gives the wiki a lot of structure...

But let me make a suggestion... When you do minor changes like adding a cathegorie to a page, could you please mark them as a minor change ? I look at the recent changes quite frequently to stay up2date and it would be nice to see, when it's a minor change.

By the way, you can also setup to have the minor-change-box be checked by default, if that helps...

Best regards, --Chewi 01:41, 15 October 2007 (MST)

Hello and thanks for the welcome. I realize What hardware I will need and System Requirements are similar. I was using System Requirements as a rough draft for my revision of the What hardware I will need page. I just finished adding content from What hardware I will need and once I finish adding system req's for MDs, I may have the pages merged, with one redirecting to the other, depending on the feedback I get from wiki admins and the like. Thanks again and let me know if there's any other pages I can help with. --Bmk789 16:47, 6 December 2007 (MST)

PNG/JPG

Hello Matthew,

I noticed that you uploaded a few images. Unfortunately, pngs are displayed, but coverting to jpgs will allow your images to be displayed.

convert foo.png foo.jpg 

I hope this helps. I ran into this very problem when I started uploading files. --Rwilson131 11:09, 22 December 2007 (MST)


Thanks. How did you notice?

FWIW, I was just using the wiki as a server at which to store images with a URL so I could insert the URL in a forum post with the [img] tag. But that discussion is about revisions to an articke (Cisco 7970) into which I expect to insert those images later. There's no wiki feature for converting on the server, right? And why does the wiki not display the PNGs? The wiki also seems not to support some other features from Wikipedia.org , like some table templates. Maybe the admin should turn those features on, or upgrade the Wiki SW if that's necessary. - Matthew 15:10, 22 December 2007 (MST)
