Some time back, while trying to understand why the card reader on my HP Mini netbook will not function under PCLinuxOS, I came to know that I needed some drivers for that which were not in our repository. This lead me eventually to search for methods of packaging for PCLinuxOS. I even transiently had dreams of becoming a packager eventually. (Due to time constraints it has not yet materialised.)
While there are many posts / threads on the forum dealing with this, they are outdated either fully or partially or are splattered over different threads / posts.
Having a centralised wiki page that is easy to edit and update would be a good way of helping new / would be packagers.
Hence I have collected whatever I thought was important / current over at PCLinuxOS Knowledge Base.
I request Packagers, Admins and Knowledgeable PCLinuxOS folks to kindly go through it to correct any errors and add useful information as you feel necessary. I believe a page such as this should not give out any incorrect information.
If you do not have enough time to edit the wiki page, I would be glad to add / edit according to your suggestions in this thread.
