fink-beginners Mailing List

The fink-beginners list is the general discussion list for new Fink users. Here you can ask for help if you have problems getting started with Fink, if you are a unix newbie and want to learn how the command line works. Anyone can subscribe and post to the list.

Please don't use HTML or rich text mails and avoid attachments if you can. The list has a strict size limit of 40K.

Important: Before posting a call for help on the list, please make an attempt to resolve your problem using the documentation, the FAQ, the fink-beginners archives and the fink-users archives first. If you ask for help for a well-known problem, expect to be pointed back at these resources.
