Yes, nice desktop theme, colours, are very nice, yoyo.

I did as mentioned to try upgrading by adding the pardus-linux-org testing repo, and removing the other repos.   Whether I use  package manager GUI or konsole pisi, the downloads will start, then stop after a couple of minutes.  I've been trying since last night.    I'm now just trying to get the kernel with its dependencies, (pisi it --reinstall kernel ) but that too stalls after a couple minutes go by.   Dial up user.  

P.S.  Now trying to get 184 packages after doing sudo pisi up.  It does stall on kernel with message:
Program terminated.
Could not fetch destination file "h t t p //paketler.pardus-linux.org/pardus/2012/testing/x86_64/kernel-3.2.5-162-p11-x86_64.pisi": [Errno 14] HTTP Error 206 : h t t p //paketler.pardus-linux.org/pardus/2012/testing/x86_64/kernel-3.2.5-162-p11-x86_64.pisi  
P.S.S. having better results downloading kernel 3.2.5-152 using wget as it will retry when connectiion is closed.

I have no idea how to do that, but it sounds interesting.  Maybe this information will be of help, as it states that some linux drivers for wifi don't support ad-hoc.  In that situation,  ndiswrapper could be of help.

Yes, this is good news. 

I too have been looking at other distros, though I still have MoonOS Chakra that is ubuntu-based, I prefer rpm to deb packages if I have a choice.  I also need something with long-term support, so Rosa, a Mandrake or Mandriva derivative, caught my eye and my husband is downloading the RC version at moment.  I've never tried Mandriva or Mandrake, so it will be all new to me.  I hope it doesn't come with advertisements.  Wink

Yes, you are correct atolboo, in my difficult attempt, I am learning much about lib32 libraries.  I did try my second attempt, and I can:
nspluginwrapper -u
nspluginwrapper: expected plugin(s) file name to update
and haven't yet installed citrix for 64 bits but plugin needs firefox 32 bits, and that is where nspluginwrapper comes in.  Citrix has its own dependencies that are probably  not available in Pardus repos.  I tried installing the latest acrobat reader and of course it won't install as it needs lots of lib32 libraries, so I can't test the acroread plugin.  If only there was a small plugin for 32 bits that is easy to install so I can test nspluginwrapper. 
I will try your build file you suggested, as that way I can learn how to use build files.  Something to learn.  Smiley

Hi Murat,

As you can see, my attempt at compiling is in the dark.  My husband wonders why I even try as I don't know what I am doing, but that is just me and my curiousity.  He says I first need to learn how to compile an easy program before tackling a complicated one, and he says it would be helpful if I learned a computer language as that would take the guess work out of what I am doing.  He is correct! 

This morning since I have more time to "play", I will do a 'make clean' and attempt again, this time adding more  what is asked for all of those prefixes.  I am guessing at what to add for target-cpu=CPU and left that blank the last time and it put i386.  I will try x_86_64.  And, I did add a few extra libraries I downloaded from pkgs dot org, so a sloppy way to do it, but they were lib32-libx11, lib32-libxau, lib32-libxcmdp, lib32-libxcb, lib32-libSM, and lib32-libxt.  Taking a  look at the rpm source version, there are quite a few patches and it doesn't require ia32 as that is a debian-only package .

I can try Citrix if I first get nspluginwrapper installed correctly, so that is a big "if".

I'm just here to entertain and probably annoy, too, the developers and give them a belly laugh.  Grin

and now that I know what it is for,  Roll Eyes I had to look for a 32 bit plugin to try it on.  Finding 32-bit plugins wasn't easy by search for me, and the only one that popped up was Adobe Reader 9 so I downloaded the 9.5 version and tried to install it, but that didn't go well as it is a plugin plus the software viewer.  I either got the message from nswrapperplugin -i -a -u that there was no available viewer, or that it wasn't an NSAP,  or something to that acronym.  I then figured I better test acroreader to see if it even starts, but it wouldn't.  Konsole said
"/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: libxml2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"  I did try installing the plugin through the adobe install.sh output in konsole, but it never would, kept asking me whether I wanted choice 1. global, 2. user only, or 3. can't remember what 3. was for.  So the plugin wouldn't install that way.

I also noticed that nspluginwrapper gives a similar error, but it is looking for libgtk-x11.2.0.so.  I had a look in /usr/libs and the file is there, though it is a symlink to shared library libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.2200.1.  I did a search and seems there are several software compile issues where they look for the shared libraries in /usr/lib32 when they should look in /usr/lib.  That is where I saw mention of the debian package ia32 fixes this.  I'll play some more to see if I can point it to /usr/lib in the makefile.

I don't know if I have success, as I didn't really know which prefixes to use and I don't know what nspluginwrapper is used for, but this is the konsole output I got (attachment).  And since I saw many of the executables in my home folder in the nspluginwrapper unpacked directory, I then used sudo make to install it, hoping they would be placed in /bin,  which was probably not wise. 

I also don't know what to do with this command, where to point it:
Code:
nspluginwrapper -i /path/to/plugin.so

Code:
nspluginwrapper --v
invalid option --v
nspluginwrapper, configuration tool.  Version 1.4.4

   usage: nspluginwrapper [flags] [command [plugin(s)]]

   -h --help               print this message
   -v --verbose            flag: set verbose mode
   -a --auto               flag: set automatic mode for plugins discovery
   -n --native             flag: allow native plugin(s) to be wrapped
   -l --list               list plugins currently installed
   -u --update [FILE(S)]   update plugin(s) currently installed
   -i --install [FILE(S)]  install plugin(s)

Hi Lisa,

What do you mean by adding? Sorry I did not understand.

Just curious, did you try what was suggested in that file adding the gcc extension, #include_next <limits.h>,  so it will look for all limits.h's under include?    Having a search on this and that was one suggestion. 

How do I can add?

Best Regards,

Murat
Hi Murat,
No, sorry I do not know how, but thought you are atolboo who is way above me in knowledge of compiling, that it would be a clue.   Embarrassed

I am playing, as I call what I do when I try to compile, with the nspluginwrapper.  Right now I am assuming there are some lib missing.  At the moment I am attempting to install all dependencies for lib32-lbxt.  Some area already installed, such as xproto, but now I am installing python-xcb.
My attempts are always  difficult and probably not necessary (due to ignorance)  to install these dependencies, but just curious if it will do anything positive.

For a true test I reinstalled Pardus.   I didn't install any additional packages I previously added when trying to get the scanner to work, so all fresh.

I installed the cnjifilter printer packages for the mx410 and that went well.

Then installed scangearmp-common 1.8 and that installed, but when I tried to install scangearmp-mx410series-1.70 it says its dependency is scangearmp-common 1.70.  So, sorry to say it looks like you will need to get common 1,8 to work with mx410sseries 1.7 or build a mx410series 1.8, though I don't see the latter at the canon site, only version 1.7.  I did try and install mg4100series 1.8 but that driver didn't work for this mx410.  Just thought I would try that as the only difference between the mg and the mx is the mx has fax capabilities.  Didn't work though.  Your work is double as this is two drivers, ugh. My hat is off to you and a. palius for your hard work.

a.palius, I'm the only one that can doubt myself.  Just tested 1.8 common and it works.  Cheesy  I never would have thought about backward compatibility.

Scanned a document, saved it as .png then printed it.  All working that I know of.  And again, thank you!

This might help give an idea of dependencies, though it is rpm version:

Wonderful!  Ah, gee thanks so much!  I'm now printing a scanned document that scangearmp GUI saved as PDF.  Nice job to you and a. palius!  I thought he was wrong about 1,8 but he was right.  Cheesy
I'm excited as now I won't have to log into Windows anymore and can get rid of it.  The scanner was the last device to hold out from Linux.  And really amazing as it is a new multifunctional and a Canon product.  Definitely solved here.
Hugs to you both!
