Debian GNU/Linux FAQ
Prev Home Next

11.3 Is there a quick way to search for information on Debian GNU/Linux?

There is a variety of search engines that serve documentation related to Debian:

  • Google Groups: a search engine for newsgroups.

    For example, to find out what experiences people have had with finding drivers for Promise controllers under Debian, try searching on the phrase Promise Linux driver. This will show you all the postings that contain these strings, i.e. those where people discussed these topics. If you add Debian to those search strings, you'll also get the postings specifically related to Debian.

  • Any of the common web spidering engines, such as AltaVista or Google, as long as you use the right search terms.

    For example, searching on the string "cgi-perl" gives a more detailed explanation of this package than the brief description field in its control file.
