16  General / General topics / Re: A Mandriva user write little about Pardus 2011 RC on: January 24, 2011, 19:25:15 PM
The author of the review notes, at the end, that installing Pardus prevented him from accessing his mandriva os.

Only one word of advise for Mandriva Linux beginners (like myself): if you have a dual boot (Mandriva-Windows) and you install Pardus, you lose your access to Mandriva because the Pardus grub won't let you see Mandriva. Likewise, after I restored the Mandriva grub, I couln't find Pardus. I'm sure there must be a way to triple boot, but that is right now beyond my limited knowledge.<end quote>

I hope that the developers can overcome this.
There are many posts on many forums about "booting".
Unfortunately they seem too complex(to me)
I would really like someone to point me to an article that explains in very great detail, but lucidly, how "chain loading" overcomes this.
17  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / screensaver unlock? on: January 23, 2011, 16:05:28 PM
pardus 2011 live 64 bit
I get through Kaptan (using defaults) and just click on the last kaptan "help" when the screen goes gray (3 shades of gray with something like a venn diagram) and in the bottom left corner appear 2 icons--a monitor icon and a gearwheel icon.
In the center of the screen appears a small window with, on the left,
"panter pardus" and just under it appears "pars"
There are 2 buttons on the right side of this window with icons that mean nothing to me

I am only able to get out by restarting.(with ubuntu I just hit the space bar)

I have just restarted Pardus live and this time the gray screen did not appear until I had changed the resolution to 1600x1200.(from 1920x1200 native)

(I am guessing) it looks as though my regular OS (ubuntu10.04) is turning on the screensaver and Pardus requires a password to unlock it. (there is NO password asked for in Kaptan)
(My screen saver in Ubuntu goes black whereas Pardus seems to go gray)

If this is something that only happens with the live cd and does NOT occur with the install cd there is no problem as the live cd has shown me how beautiful this version of Pardus is.

Thanks atolboo for replying
Since my last post I found the following blog:

This seems to be by a KDE developer.
After KDE 4.0 was released there were a number of people who called it a "fiasco".
As far as I can understand it this KDE  developer is saying that the method of releasing  KDE must always be like that as it is the only way of getting a large number of people to try it and to submit error reports.
This would seem to be similar to Debian "testing"; the major difference is that Kde offers no "stable" version
This developer says that PIM is "not good" at present and that nepomuk has almost no function at present.
One of the comments to this blog suggested that KDE should develop apps at the same time so that users could see the benefits that "nepomuk" et al bring to him.
The author of this blog says that there is not enough manpower for this to occur.
I am having second thoughts about KDE ( I was really happy with KDE 3.5; but there is no support now)
Thank you for suggesting that I start a new topic re Kmail.

Thanks John A
but all the words were correctly spelled yet each had a wigly red underline
only "wigly" is underlined in this post
So it seems to have corrected itself.
I am having problems receiving emails using kmail
the help section talks about "create and configure" in the "receiving" tab , yet no such buttons appear.

many thanks atolboo
That is what I needed
(as you can see I am using Pardus to post this mesage)
(why are all the words in this post underlined in red?

On the desktop there are 2 home icons and 2 trash icons
Should I repost this question  as a new message?

I do not understand what the "profile" means, also the other "titles" are not understood.
Perhaps someone could supply a tutorial with all the entries filled in so that I would know what type of information is required for each button
(i use a router)
22  Assistance / Installing Pardus / 2009-2. install on: June 06, 2010, 00:25:27 AM
after log in  prompt a window appears with
 "Error--No storage "
I deleted the first partition (windows 20 gig) and then the install worked up to network connection
I had assumed (wrongly) that I could delete that partition when the installer got to partitioning
(new post below)

How, or why, is this classed as "SOLVED?
24  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: cd/dvd burner? k3b for kde4? on: January 23, 2010, 17:13:19 PM
Many thanks
As long as k3b is in the install cd  I am happy.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10. I have only started to use Ubuntu in the last few weeks.
This comp. was my backup and was rarely used. I was using kde for a couple of years until the comp that it was on died.
Both are (were ) old.
This one will, about once a day, suddenly drop the app (usually FF) and revert back to the desktop.
I ran "memtest" on the ram (2 sticks of 512 each) for more than 8 hours (overnight) with no errors found.
A new comp is planned for later this summer.
25  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / cd/dvd burner? k3b for kde4? on: January 23, 2010, 03:39:04 AM
I cannot seem to find any cd /dvd burner listed in the apps of the 2009.1 live cd.
26  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: internet connection on: January 23, 2010, 03:01:03 AM
your clear and beautifully written directions WORKED
As you can see I am using Pardus to make this post

I had previoiusly used a layout with no bottom panel and had failed to see the earth sphere.
I have a celeron 2 gig cpu and 1gig of ram and I find this live cd to be slow to load
I believe that part of my problem was that  I did not wait long enough after  clicking on a button
Your repeated advice to "WAIT was very relevant for me.
Now I have to try the install cd!
Many thanks
27  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: internet connection on: January 22, 2010, 20:34:59 PM
Many thanks to all
I used "jan" which did not work.
It looks as though one has to use a word that appears in the device listing.such as "etho"

That wiki was what I should have looked at first.
I have the wiki for the 2008 version but it does not use the term "profile"
This word (profile) seems to have many meanings in the computer world
(btw I think the way that info is presented (re : internet connection) in the 2008 wiki is clearer)
Thanks. I thought it might be but couldn't find the identical photo in google.
28  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / (SOLVED)internet connection on: January 21, 2010, 21:05:56 PM
The wizard asks for "profile name"(using the "live"cd, 2009.1)
What is this?
Perhaps you could direct me to a site that holds my hand while explaining all the options and terms.
My ISP only has MS trained people and any word not in the MS language is out of their reach (they are very nice and try to help a much as possible)
BTW what is the name of the gorgeous mountain in the background of the wall paper (with yellow sunflowers in the foreground)


I saw "     heimdall" post
but since his use of eth0 did not lead to a working connection I thought that I also needed some more explanation
29  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: calisan live cd. Pardus 2009.1 RC on: January 10, 2010, 22:08:06 PM
Many thanks to you all

the problem is my computer

I took the cd to a friend who uses Windows 7 and it would not load on his computer.
So I asked him to download the live cd and burn a cd for me.
He did and it ran perfectly on his machine, but when I tried it on mine I got the same black screen as before.
So now I have to do some internal checks.
(My friend was confused by the instruction on how to chose "English" as it looked to him that the the english box was already highlighted. It seems that the instructions refer to the actual text that should be looked at, rather than the background. I made the same mistake)
30  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / calisan live cd. Pardus 2009.1 RC on: January 09, 2010, 16:40:01 PM
It gets as far as "automatic log in" then "Pardus#"
then a black screen
Same happens with both english and Turkish version.
I tried clicking enter with no effect
I have the install cd but am scared
I had 2 computers but one just died. My back up one has Ubuntu (on a 160 gig hard drive. using only 40 gig partition)
I have seen, on many forums, posts complaining that attempting to do a "dual" install wipes out the previous OS (and especially if the first OS is a linux one)
I have also seen, recently, a number of posts saying that they don't understand "Grub2"
Is there a FAILSAFE way of installing a second (or greater) OS ?(hopefully with Pardus but any OS that can do it would be great)
