Special URLs

Talk status
This discussion is done.

Prefixing Special URLs with http:// is definitely wrong. Copy one of them like "http://about:config" to the url bar, press ENTER and Firefox will take you to some search page. --Charles17 (talk) 06:42, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I didn't check, glad you caught that! My intention there was to provide links for Firefox users to click on that would take them to the internal configuration pages. Have any idea on how we could provide a click able link there? I reverted the links to copy and paste code as they were before before; I think click able links would work better. --Maffblaster (talk) 16:32, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Broken link in USE flag section

Talk status
This discussion is done.

The link to the Backtraces page (http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/backtraces.xml) for the debug use flag description, results in a 404. The correct one is probably Project:Quality_Assurance/Backtraces. However, I wasn't able to figure out how to change it (probably somewhere within the Template:USEflag) --Paraenggu (talk) 22:24, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

I have fixed the link. It might take a little while before the page gets refreshed. You were right in your figuring, the correct article to update was Template:USEflag/use.desc. We'd like to eventually do away with the way USE flags are handled for a more dynamic method, however that work is yet to be done. :) Thanks for the keen observation! Keep up the good work! --Maffblaster (talk) 22:46, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Note the warning

Talk status
This discussion is done.

The "Emerge" section says, "users of the pre-built package should note the warning below." What warning below? Please enlighten. - dcljr (talk) 01:33, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

The source of the problem is this update. The warning was moved, and I guess later deleted. Stqn (talk) 13:35, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
I've restored the general part of the warning about not being able to set the listed USE flags. - dcljr (talk) 21:00, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
That's fine. I think most Gentoo users know about it. I added the warning in case newcomers think unbranded Firefox (Aurora) USE flags are effective for Firefox. --Maffblaster (talk) 22:29, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
