Suggested edit to the Beginners Guide.

I tried to edit the Beginners guide but don't have permission.

The section headed 'Manual connection at boot using systemd' [1] is now a dead link, it should point to the new systemd-networkd way of doing things [2].

Does anyone with permission fancy makng the edit?

Re: Suggested edit to the Beginners Guide.

I think all you need to do is open a wiki account.

I have one, but not everyone is allowed to edit the Beginners Guide (I'm guessing that's because it's such an important page).

Re: Suggested edit to the Beginners Guide.

Maybe it has to do with account age? Anyway, I made the suggested fix and also changed the link text.

Are you sure you're logged in with your wiki account?

Re: Suggested edit to the Beginners Guide.

In think slithery tried to edit the Beginners' Guide article itself, which is indeed protected, but because it's only a meta-article that transcludes 3 sub-articles with the real content: Beginners' Guide/Preparation, Beginners' Guide/Installation and Beginners' Guide/Post-installation; these are the articles that users are supposed to edit.

I too discovered this the hard way...
