I've got no clue why he was saying glibc isn't installed by default... seems more likely the program he was using was looking for an older lib. That said, I'd like to see stuff like autoconf/automake/cmake and so on in the base system. No clue on that Hercules sound card, never heard of them before. His complaints about nvidia installation are somewhat moot these days. Pisi was a bit on the unstable side in 2007.x days, I've found it much improved lately... especially glad they've got rid of that search on keypress thing in the gui front-end.

Not that abysmal a review by the standards of his other postings. Smiley

Reviews are longer, have screenshots and generally consist of more than bitching about Novell being useless. :)

Reading that techiemoe website atm, some interesting stuff on there... only one downside so far which is he/she/it admitting to not liking Slackware much. Slack was my first linux distro and whenever I see that antiquated curses installer I get a slight tingle in the bad places.

At least you've still got torrents to fall back on. :)
5  General / The Pub / opensuse 11.1 on: December 19, 2008, 03:38:10 AM
I'm waiting for the upcoming linux mint x86_64 release so thought I'd try out the new opensuse 11.1 for kicks. I last tried out opensuse sometime early in the 9.x series and was unhappy with the desktop performance, everything felt sluggish and bloated compared to other KDE distros. This isn't a review or anything, just a rant.

Grabbed the KDE4 x86_64 livecd, ran a successful media test and went to install it... unfortunately after the boot process X wouldn't initialize. I was left with a blank screen, hitting CTRL-ALT-F1 got me into a console (that I couldn't see) so I hit alt-ctrl-del and rebooted. This time I tried to boot with failsafe and VESA but encountered the same problem. The next time I booted in textmode, logged in as root and had a look at the xorg.conf file to see what the problem was.

I've got zero idea what autodetection stuff Novell use but I decided to just strip out everything from the Monitor section except the identifier and let X do the detection. This got me into KDE...

Section "Monitor"
  Option       "CalcAlgorithm" "XServerPool"
  HorizSync    30-40
  Identifier   "Monitor[0]"
  ModelName    "Unknown"
  Option       "DPMS"
  VendorName   "Unknown"
  VertRefresh  50-75
  UseModes     "Modes[0]"

I went through the install (the partition manager needs serious work) and rebooted, fixed X again and got a desktop. Lasted about 30 minutes before I formatted the partition. I went to post the problem on the opensuse forum just in case anyone else had the same trouble with their monitor (or the other things I encountered and had to fix) ... but couldn't register due to a server error. Fun.

This is completely biased by the way, a distro that came from anyone but Novell I'd probably be a lot more patient with. I just keep hearing wonderful things about suse from people and everytime I try it I come away frustrated with the experience.

Relevant hardware: Samtron 76E, Nvidia 8800GTX

You're forcing me to relieve a traumatic experience... I was beaten mercilessly once at a LUG after admitting I use nano.

8  Assistance / Software / Re: [Pardus-devel] [RFT] Request for Testing of New MPlayer on: December 14, 2008, 16:08:43 PM
So, uninstall pardus mplayer package before install the willem's version and see if the main window skin is in french.

It's actually the 'Onur version' Smiley Willem posted Onur's msg from the pardus-devel mailing list so that a wider variety of people can test the package.

Yep, all fixed... marked solved. Mushi-shi is win btw...
11  Assistance / Bugs / [solved] smplayer aspect ratio problem: on: November 26, 2008, 03:12:51 AM
Just upgraded smplayer to from 0.6.4-14-5 and noticed that playback of 720p mkv files (possibly applies to other media files, haven't tested extensively) now displays in a 4:3 aspect ratio (not widescreen basically).

Haven't got time this morning to investigate it properly and file a bug report, removing ~/.smplayer & ~/.config/smplayer didn't help... using the history manager to rollback to the previous release worked fine.
12  General / Wish list / Re: I'd like to see Klamav updated on: October 26, 2008, 16:52:25 PM
Don't moderate me into oblivion for this... but it looks like 0.94.1rc1 (0.93.3 in repo) is the latest for clamav, whereas 0.44 (0.42 in repo) is the latest for klamav. So they're not quite that out of date. Smiley

I don't know what the cause is but I can duplicate the problem you describe. Might be worthwhile filing a bug report.
14  General / Tips and tricks / Pardus Mailing Lists on: October 26, 2008, 04:55:56 AM
Serdar posted the following on pardus-devel:

Feel free to comment on both pardus-users and pardus-devel lists whether
there is a bug or not, or any other pardus/linux related things. Also it
would be nice to encourage world-forum-pardus users to be canalized to
these lists and share comments.

So just in case people aren't familiar with the mailing lists...


subscribe: http://liste.pardus.org.tr/mailman/listinfo/pardus-devel
archives: http://liste.pardus.org.tr/pardus-devel/

I primarily use pardus-devel to submit packages and updates, the developers are very helpful so don't be afraid of trying to contribute. It is a development list though, so for support issues try pardus-users instead.


subscribe: http://liste.pardus.org.tr/mailman/listinfo/pardus-users
archives: http://liste.pardus.org.tr/pardus-users/

A complement to worldforum, pardus-users is another place to go when you're stuck on something and need advice.
15  General / Wish list / Re: [semi-solved] AbiWord, please? on: October 26, 2008, 03:07:49 AM
This might be relevant to your problem Mourningdove. I went to run Abiword after installing from the repo and encountered the following error:

abiword: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeui-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've submitted an updated pspec.xml/actions.py to pardus-devel with libgnomeui added as a dependency. If the change is approved by the devel team, it might take a few days for the update to make it to the repo. So if anyone encounters this problem in the meantime just do the following as root:

pisi it libgnomeui

EDIT: Serdar has commited the changes to contrib, so it should turn up in the repos in a few days.
