(NOTE: I am an SGI employee)
A sales guy came into my office, requesting information on the ProPack
and other Linux products from SGI.
I started hacking out a FAQ, realized that this most likely was
somewhere on oss.sgi.com, found the link on the PP 1.3 page and
discovered that it was dead. And so was several of the other FAQ links
on oss.sgi.com. I did find the 1.2 FAQ.
A good FAQ is worth a project on its own. Someone should have the task
of creating the tools for generating a good, extendable, maintainable,
updated FAQ. Is such a project underway? *REALLY?*
In the mean time, I'll try to cough up some questions and provide decent
Should we make a generic FAQ for all of SGIs Linux products, or one for
each product? Having updated information is crucial....
