Hi All,

My daughter recently killed her USB thumb drive and lost all her school work. She uses Pardus 2009.0 and I was wondering if dropbox or a spideroak client in the Pardus repository? If not, can anybody recommend an equivalent that I can use with Pardus and say Windows. I hope so as I don't want to install her PC with Ubuntu.

Last night I had to repair my daughter's PC which has been happily running Pardus 2008.x for several months now. Not sure what happened, but either Emerald or Compiz killed it, and I couldn't recover from it Sad

Anyway as I had to download Pardus 2008.2, I decided on downloading 2009 instead, and after a very uneventful install (always a good sign) I booted to a shiny new KDE4.2.4 desktop. First off my I give a big thanks and heaps of praise for the developers as Pardus 2009 looks very polished and professional and KDE 4.2 looks super.

Anyway, back top the point in hand, I configured all but Skype, which I couldn't find in PiSi. Any ideas how I can install this, my daughter uses it quite a lot to talk to her cousins in Canada and Australia and her friends in France?

Just installed this on a VM and I was blown away with the installer and how professional it looks. I like the pink and gold that runs throughout the installer and boot process, but was disappointed with being dumped into standard KDE 4 desktop. Sad

I know its an alpha release, but I hope (fingers crossed) that the "pardus" look will go into the final product as Pardus 2008.x was for me the best iteration of KDE 3.5.x series.

I noticed some grammatical and spelling errors in the English translation of the installer, who do I contact about that?

Keep up the good work and I will look forward to seeing this get better as July approaches Cheesy

@ PhiX

I followed your instructions and I got the following when I did pisi up: -

No signature found for http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus-2008.2/pisi-index.xml.bz2
* Package database updated.
No packages to upgrade.

So I take it I am up to date?

@ bubbel

I did a sysinfo:/ and it reports: -

Kde 3.5.10 on Pardus 2008.2 Canis aureus

Hi PhiX,

I did what you said but it still didn't do anything. This is what the output was:

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum, but how do I use Pisi to upgrade to 2008.2? I have checked my repo's and they are pointing to 2008.1 and if I change them to 2008.2, there is still nothing to upgrade.

Am I doing something wrong?


9  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Sharing Drives from Ubuntu with Arch Linux and Pardus on: February 10, 2009, 11:24:41 AM
Hi All,

I have 3 Linux boxes in my house, 1 Ubuntu 8.10, 1 Arch Linux running KDE 4.2 and 1 Pardus 2008.1.

I have a 1TB drive in my Ubuntu box which I have got my music collection on. This drive is mounted permanently in /media/sda2 and has an icon on my Ubuntu desktop.

Now my daughter's PC is the Pardus box and my son's is the Arch Linux box and they want to be able to play the music on sda2 through the network.

I have tried setting up the share through NFS, but alas I cannot install nfs-common on the Arch or Pardus boxes as I cannot find nfs-common.

I have tried the Samba route, but I cannot share the drive because of access issues, which I assume is to do with my user permissions.

I don't want anything fancy, just read permissions. I have posted this in the Arch and Ubuntu forums to see if they can shed some light as well.

Cheers in advance

Scratch that last message, I figured out why I couldn't "su". I had to give myself administrator privilages in the user account and then I could use the "su" command.

Anyway, just to let you know that I managed to get the wireless working, so this weekend Windows is history on my daughters PC and she will be introduced to the wonders of Pardus  Grin

So thansk for all your help, it was much appreciated  Grin

OK, I have downloaded the driver and unzipped it. Here is the roblem, which I have reported to the forum before but it was never resolved. The system does not recognise my root password. When installing I use 2 different passwords, one for my username and one for root. When I run things like PiSi or Tasma and it asks for the root password, I enter the one I set during installation and everything is fine. When I try to change the time or type su, the root password is not accepted  Huh?

Any ideas?

14  Assistance / Hardware / Installing a Netgear WG111 Wireless USB Dongle in Pardus 2008.1 on: December 17, 2008, 14:05:56 PM
Hi All,

Recently my daughter's XP box got riddled with spyware/malware again and I am fed up of wiping and reinstalling every few months. I want to put Pardus on the PC but what is holding me back is that she uses a Netgear WG111 Wireless USB Dongle to talk to the outside world.

I have done a search and all I can find is a French forum post which (I think) gives step by step instructions on how to install such device using Pardus. Unfortunately my French is not very good, so is there a English guide or can anybody help with instructions on how to setup one of these wireless dongles?

Cheers in advance

OK... both my root and user password are exactly the same (I know, I know not a secure way, but hey  Wink ) so if it is the user password it wants then I should be OK.

As to my native language, well personally that would be Welsh, but I use English UK as my language. I seem to remember that the default language is English US and I cannot install others.

As a side note, I run Pardus in a VM and I have the same issue there, I cannot administer the time and date as the same error crops up. Maybe I will do a VM install with a different root password to the user and see if that makes a difference Smiley
