     6iceberg. We hope that the experience you gained with the LFS book and the BLFS
     7book will give you the background needed to compile, install and configure
     8packages that are not included in this book.</para>

     16the package at <ulink url="http://freshmeat.net/"/>. Also search Google at
     17<ulink url="http://google.com/"/>. Sometimes a search for the rpm at
     18<ulink url="http://rpmfind.net/"/> or the deb at
     19<ulink url="http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages"/> can also
     20lead to the website for the package.</para></listitem>

     22<listitem><para>If you know the name of the executable, but not the package that
     23the executable belongs to, first try a google
     24search with the name of the executable. If the results are overwhelming, try
     25searching for the given executable in the debian repository at
     26<ulink url="http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_contents"/>.
