6.3.1 Check bugs in Debian and seek help

If you are experiencing problems with a specific package, make sure to check out these sites first before you seek help or file a bug report. (lynx, links, and w3m work equally well):

     $ lynx
     $ lynx  # if you know package name
     $ lynx     # if you know bug number

Search Google ( with search words including "".

When in doubt, read the fine manual. Set CDPATH as follows:

     export CDPATH=.:/usr/local:/usr/share/doc

and type

     $ cd packagename
     $ pager README.Debian # if this exists
     $ mc

More support resources are listed at Support for Debian, Chapter 15.
