61  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / [solved] No sound on Laptop (Amilo) on: October 15, 2008, 17:36:48 PM
As I like Pardus so much, I just tried installing it on my girlfriends laptop (Fujitsu Simens Amilo). Everything works fine, even the wireless LAN stick I had already given up on. But a serious problem is: there is no sound. Volume is turned to 100% and Amarok seems to be playing, but there is no sound output. This is a serious issue, as the laptop is connected to the stereo and usually serves as mp3 player for the living room. I need a fast solution, or my GF will insist I discard Pardus and re-install Mepis.

Any idea what could be wrong?

There seems to be a bug, because I get:

modprobe aes dm_mod dm-crypt sha256
WARNING: Error inserting aes_generic (/lib/modules/2.6.25.16-108/kernel/crypto/aes_generic.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting padlock_aes (/lib/modules/2.6.25.16-108/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock-aes.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting aes_i586 (/lib/modules/2.6.25.16-108/kernel/arch/x86/crypto/aes-i586.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)


And I cannot try anymore, because my drive lierally crashed this evening!!! Just a drop from 50 centimeters height, but it doesn't react anymore... so sad  Sad

It's about 5 years old.

Okay, I installed kernel-source and recompiled, but the outcome is still the same.

I had these installed, except for kernel-source, I don't think I need this, as I am compiling a program, not a kernel.

files pmount and pumound can be found in /usr/local/bin and when called, pmount tells me what arguments it needs, so it seems to work. Still, it does not mount anything!

First, what is the output of the following command line ?
Code:
hdparm -i /dev/sr0


/dev/sr0:

67  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Problem with encrypted external harddrive on: October 14, 2008, 14:05:16 PM
Hi, I have got an encrypted external haddrive I'd like to mount with Pardus. When I enter

cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdc2 secret

I am asked for my password, but then I get a

Failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping.
Check kernel for support for the aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 cipher spec and verify that /dev/sdc2 contains at least 258 sectors.
Failed to read from key storage


Does anyone know how to get it working? My other distros (Mepis, Sidux) support it out-of-box, but I like Pardus better and want to continue using it. But I have to be able to get my external drive mounted....
68  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: "pmount" command not found, where is it? on: October 14, 2008, 13:54:47 PM
okay, I did it takt way, but it doesn't seem to work! I tried a test run with pmount /dev/sdc1 test and there is no error message, but I do not get a /test directory under media. What could be wrong?
69  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: serious problem: cd/dvd drive slowdown on: October 14, 2008, 12:38:33 PM
Okay, would be great if this is the only problem. How do I enable it? Maybe the old kernels did it automatically?

Hmm, this Wiki does not seem to be complete yet, is it? Can anyone tell me the exect steps of how to make a pisi package of a source I downloaded?

my folder is called /home/frisil/2install/pmount-0.9.13

So with debian I would do:

su root (+give password)
cd /home/frisil/2install/pmount-0.9.13
./configure
make
checkinstall

what about Pardus? I think I do the same steps up to "make", but how to go on? I think I need "pisi build" somehow, can anyone give me the exact command that should work in this case? Sorry, I am completely new to pisi!

@Andreas: Thanks for reporting it for me, I would have done it myself now if you haven't been faster. I added what they requested in the bug report, so I hope someone can tell me what went wrong and what can be done about it.

@Lisa: Thanks for the friendly welcome! I really love Pardus at first sight, my first thought was: This is a desktop Linux as it should be! Then I encountered this dreadful bug...
Please tell me if it also occured on your old machine, or is it just me? BTW, I added my dmesg info to the bug report Andreas filed, so you can look there if it helps.

@everyone: Thanks for this friendly support, Pardus seems to be great, even the community!
72  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: serious problem: cd/dvd drive slowdown on: October 13, 2008, 17:27:09 PM
(@Andreas:
Do you suggest something went wrong with the iso I installed from? I checked the md5 and even the cd after it was burnt, there were no errors. Installation went well, no errors, too. And I also had the same problem with other new distros.) =>as you deleted your post, I think this is obsolete now?

@PhiX:
I am surprised no-one else knows about this, as it happened with all computers I tried. Drives are different, one is Sony (Laptop), one is LG and one Panasonic, so it's not the same manufacturer. But there is something that all computers have in common: The older kernels called the harddrives hda, hdb, etc... and the cd-drives worked. Newer kernels now call my harddrives sda, sdb... and these are the kernels that cause this problem. I use IDE harddrives, not sata, by the way. Can this be the problem?

But there has to be a way to fix it! Many computers still use IDE drives, it cannot be true that newer Linux kernels no longer are compatible, can it?
73  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: "pmount" command not found, where is it? on: October 13, 2008, 17:15:15 PM
Okay, but as I am totally new to Pardus and pisi, how do I safely install a self-compiled program so I can uninstall it later? Is there anything like checkinstall and dpkg for Debian? How do I make a pisi package, how do I install/remove it?

I know I could just configure / make / make install but I prefer the safe way
74  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / "pmount" command not found, where is it? on: October 13, 2008, 15:31:28 PM
Hi,
I just migrated to Pardus2008.1 (from Sidux Erebos) and cannot find the command "pmount". I have an external harddrive with an encrypted partition and with my other linux distributions (mepis and sidux), I use "pmount /dev/sd1 crypted" and then I can access it as /media/crypted. However, this does not work with Pardus, as pmount is not installed. Which package do I have to install to get it?
75  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / serious problem: cd/dvd drive slowdown on: October 13, 2008, 15:26:22 PM
Hi,
I just discovered Pardus and I must say I really like it and want to use it. However, there is one issue that renders Pardus unusable for me: DVD/CD access is kind of messed up! When I read data from a dvd, the system slows down, even the mouse pointer stutters and programs take very long to load => system not usable while accessing DVDs/CDs. Burning is even worse and burning speed only works at x1.

I think it is a problem with the new kernel, as I had the same problem with Sidux Erebos (and couldn't solve it, but using an older kernel worked).

This problem occours with all my computers, two laptops and and one desktop, so it's not specifically hardware-related, as these computers are different. Does anyone know this problem? What can be done? This cannot be a feature, it must be a bug!

I would be most grateful if anyone could help me with that, thanks in advance!
