I tried googling for help on several questions related to the scientific linux distribution.

Similar distributions have somewhat non-colliding handles ( "RHEL", "CentOS", ..) that are very good search engine "filters".

Is there an effective, standard way to search for "scientific linux" pages that i maybe missing ?

Scientific Linux is based on RHEL. Thus, all the documentation and Google results available for it (and for CentOS, too) may help you.

If you need distro-specific info, try to get help from Scientific Linux mailing lists:, particularly from the first one - Scientific-Linux-Users.

ok so RHEL and CentOS would be the keywords then. Thanks. – Jerome WAGNER Mar 14 '13 at 14:59
