would it be okay to . . .

would it be okay to seek assistance in these fora to develop
supplemental words to be added to the info given at
http://nedanet.org/ to set up a Squid proxy on an openSUSE box?

i’m wondering if even that little bit of technical assistance might be
considered too ‘political’ for TPTB and it is therefore that while the
organization’s documentation gives specific details
<http://nedanet.org/squid.conf> for users of Ubuntu, RedHat, Fedora,
Centos, Gentoo, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Mac OS X…there is
nary a peep on openSUSE, SLES, nor SLED…

which i take as not a good thing…

i think would be nice if a knowledgeable person would, as an
individual not representing any community or corporation, help them by
contributing the words necessary to allow neophyte Squid runners to do
so on all flavors of SUSE, do you?

just a question, not a suggestion.


There’s hardly anything in editing squid.conf that’s SUSE specific, the info for the other distros could be used pretty much unchanged. As for configuring squid with YaST, I haven’t used that, but then if you are using a tool to configure squid, presumably it should hand-hold you.
